Microsoft Settles $90m Lawsuit

The plaintiff, PalTalk Holdings did not reveal the terms of the agreement, but a the firm’s lawyer said, "The parties have settled the case, and PalTalk is quite pleased with the outcome."

A Microsoft spokesperson said it was an "amicable agreement."

The trial between the two companies began days ago before the settlement ended the proceedings. PalTalk had said it acquired two patents from MPath Interactive, and accused Microsoft of infringing on those patents, demanding a large sum of royalties.

The patents pertained to a "server-group messaging system for interactive applications" and "emptying packed data state during execution of packed data instructions."

Prior to the settlement, Microsoft lawyer David Pritikin said, "The patents aren’t worth much. Certainly not $90 million."
