MICROSOFT STRENGTHENS IP PROTECTION FOR PC MAKERS: Microsoft has upped the intellectual property protections it offers to PC makers, which shields them from claims of patent infringement and other IP-related disputes. The move comes after a number of high-profile lawsuits targeting manufacturers using Microsoft software.

New protections will include no monetary limits on legal fees and idemnification from patent claims, copyright claims, as well as trade secret and trademark claims. Microsoft will also provide capped monetary protections for damages and settlements related to an IP case.

The coverage extends to current and future versions of Microsoft software, including Windows Server, SQL Server, Exchange Server, Microsoft Office System, and Windows client software.
