A Texas federal jury recently awarded Toronto-based i4i $200 million in an action against Microsoft for patent infringement. i4i had sued Microsoft in 2007, alleging that certain versions of Word 2003 and Word 2007 infringe i4i’s US patent entitled a "Method and System for Manipulating the Architecture and the Content of a Document Separately from Each Other." The verdict, according to Bloomberg, is the fourth-largest jury verdict in the US this year and the second-largest patent jury award in 2009 so far. Microsoft has denied that it infringed i4i’s patent and claims that i4i’s patent is invalid. It is seeking to overturn the verdict.
