Took 3 years, in and out of various courts.

Bet Bill Gates did not even flinch at the amount.

That is where it is wrong.  The damages should have been much higher,
and been priced to do the same relative financial hit to Microsoft, as
would be done to a small business or
individual sued for doing the same thing.

Sounds more like a Patent Troll to me.

Remember all those shareware programs in the 1980s that wanted you to
enter for-pay codes to unlock the non-crippled version? (TELIX3.20...)
That's what Uniloc got to own 10 years later after they got their hands
on a clueless Patent Layer. Their victory in the courts looks more like
a win from literal legal process than fact.

The issue od software patenting aside, it is nothing worse than all the
major companies engage/d in.
