I'm a personal shareholder in Microsoft (MSFT), mainly because I love their gaming products: XBOX 360, but when it comes to business practices, Microsoft has never been known as a "fair" player. Then again, who really is?
FullView, a company based in NJ is suing Microsoft and its RoundTable Webcam for patent infringement. FullView is requesting the UC District Court for the Northen District of California to require Microsoft to stop selling RoundTable and award FullView triple damages.
FullView's patent dates back to 1995 and covers a camera system with continuous full 360-degree view. The patent was officially awarded to FullView in March 2004.
