It seems that even giants in the industry may not always get their way. Microsoft has recently lost its appeal in a patent infringement case involving a feature used in its Word application. The Federal Circuit Court of Appeals is not overturning a patent infringement verdict concerning XML features in Word owned by another company.

The Court is awarding Toronto based i4i, the owner of the Custom XML patent, more than $290 million aside from $40 million for intentional infringement.
