- i4i (Infrastructures for Information) is a small technology company in Toronto, Canada founded by Michel Vulpe in 1993.
i4i is further awarded enhanced damages of $40,000,000 for Microsoft’s willful infringement.
We believe the evidence clearly demonstrated that we do not infringe and that the i4i patent is invalid.
I4i, a Toronto based corporation, filed a complaint (PDF) in March 2007 alleging that Microsoft is infringing a patent.
One with particular implications for the free enterprise system, Microsoft v. i4i, was the subject of a Guest Commentary post at our Legal Pulse blog.
Microsoft contends that a judge used the wrong standard and says the patent office did not consider that i4i had used its HTML editor in software before receiving a patent.
