UC fires back at Microsoft in browser battle

The University of California hit back at Microsoft in its pitched patent battle over fundamental Web browsing technology. UC and its one-man software spinoff Eolas on July 16 filed a brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the federal circuit, in Washington, D.C., to counter Microsoft's request for an appeal in a patent infringement case that has rattled the Web, from site authors to browser vendors to standards groups... Source: C|Net News.com Are you getting tired of hearing about this? I am. And this is rather important to use web geeks. I almost feel as though "prior art" should prevail here. And the only reason Eolas is going after Microsoft is because they do actually have the insane money they are asking for. What the heck happened to the web being a free medium?
