Another patent case involving Microsoft not valid in Europe

Danish IT news site Computerworld has a story about the Uniloc vs. Microsoft patent case where Microsoft recently was found guilty of breaching Uniloc´s patent and fined 388 million $. A reader on the site complains about such horrendous patents being granted

As most of the american software patents this patent was thrown out of Europe as the EPO refused the patent in 2002. the refusal is currently under appeal.
