C|Net has this developing story:
The smaller Santa Clara, Calif., company says Microsoft, which has added strong anti-copying mechanisms to its Windows Media Player, has come too close to InterTrust's patent-protected technology.Microsoft's rivals also say that by bundling the new media player (Windows Media Player 8) with Windows XP, MS is violating antitrust law. Other plans call for Intel and Microsoft to jointly market the Pentium 4 and Windows XP later this year.
InterTrust is asking the court to force Microsoft to stop using its anti-piracy technology--an action that could force the giant to disable a key feature in its highly touted new multimedia software. It is also asking for an unspecified amount of financial damages.
