US Federal Court in Patent violation case restrained Microsft Corp. from selling its product MS Word in US due to Patent Infringement. It was directed in the order as "Microsoft Corporation is hereby permanently enjoined" from selling Word 2003 & 2007. Injunction would be effective from 11.1.2010.
PLEASE TELL WHETHER IT WILL HAVE EFFECT ON THE EXISTING USERS OF WORD 2003 AND 2007
THE M.S CAN RECALL THE PRODUCT, SINCE IT IS SOFTWARE WHICH IS ALREADY IN USE CANNOT SUCCEED IN GETTING BACK REALLY. THE CUSTOMER CAN RETURN AT LAST THE CD. BUT CAN NOT DELETE FROM HIS INSTALLED VERSION.
LET US WAIT AND SEE FOR THE M.S ACTION AND REACTION BECAUSE IT IS AN AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT. MAJOR USERS ARE INDIA AND CHAINA.
