Symantec Sues Microsoft May 20, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Tech News.
Symantec has filed lawsuit againts Microsoft for breach of contract, trade secret violations and intellectual property violations from Microsofts contracts with Veritas
back in the 1990’s
My take; Symantec hasnt mentioned what Microsoft has exactly violated. Im guessing either NT backup or Volume Shadow Copy. If Microsoft can show that Veritas also contributed code to the Linux kernel for some of the storage capabilities that are similar on Windows then the trade secret stuff is out. I wonder what Microsoft will countersue for. If this threatens to delay Vista expect the suit to be used as an excuse or expect a quick settlement.
