LXer: Lawsuit forces users to update Microsoft Office

Published at LXer:

Users of Microsoft’s Office and Access packages have been told they will have to install updates as a result of a patent infringement dispute between Microsoft and a Guatemalan inventor that has cost the software firm almost $9 million in damages. [Ed: The article points out that technical, as well as legal, challenges apply in this situation. Gartner recommends using a version of MS Office without MS Access where not needed. Linux News recommends using or some other libre office suite where patent encumbrances of this sort are not likely to affect so many users. - dcparris]
