Microsoft also faces more damages over willful infringement

Microsoft's Office 2003 and 2007 wove XML into Word, with the introduction of .docx, otherwise known as Office Open XML, as the format of choice. The new format brought an open standard and better storage to the application. Unfortunately, it also turned into one of the company's biggest legal headaches.

I think these small companies need to stop writing such broad scoped patents just to sit on them for 10yrs and then sue companies for doing a better job with them.

However, maybe it's time someone took on Microsoft's arrogance, they did know what they were doing afterall.
