Microsoft ordered to pay $368 million to Alcatel-Lucent

Redmond (WA) – Microsoft Corp., the world’s biggest software maker, was told to pay $368 million after a jury found it infringed two patents owned by Alcatel-Lucent SA for touch- screen form entry and use of a stylus on computers.



Alcatel-Lucent had asked for about $1.75 billion from Microsoft and Dell Inc. after claiming four of its patents were violated. The jury in federal court in San Diego yesterday also said Dell infringed the stylus patent and owed Alcatel-Lucent $51,000. It rejected claims of infringement on two other patents related to video controls.
