Microsft Loss to Korean Professor at Seoul High Court

Microsoft lost a case to a Korean professor of the Korean Aerospace University. Microsoft was held to have violated part of a patent held by Professor Lee Keung-hae.

The patent Prof. Lee prevailed on was for a program that automatically switches characters from Korean to English in Microsoft Word. I despise this function in Word, since because of my poor typing skills I often miss type and the program often switches from Korean to English or English to Korean.

The damages in the case have not yet been announced.
