Microsoft quietly settles .NET legal dispute with web firm

Vertical Computer Systems kicks sue ball into stands

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Microsoft settled a patent lawsuit with Vertical Computer Systems Inc (VCS) late last week.

Fort Worth, Texas-based VCS kicked off the legal spat in April 2007, alleging that Microsoft’s .NET Framework violated patent number 6,826,744, for a "system and method for generating websites in an arbitrary object framework".

Microsoft settled the dispute with VCS on 24 July, according to a US district court in Texas filing (Seattle PI has a PDF here) by the mediator in the case, James Knowles.

Financial details of the settlement were kept secret. Microsoft was not available for comment at time of writing. ®
