Just a day after winning its patent-infringement case against Microsoft, VirnetX has filed another patent-infringement case against Microsoft, taking aim at Windows 7 – filed on March 17, 2010. Here’s VirnetX’s official statment: ‘VirnetX “filed a complaint in the Tyler Division of the Eastern District of Texas alleging infringement of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,502,135 and 7,188,180 by Microsoft’s Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 software products.” “This is a tactical and procedural post-trial action to ensure and protect our property rights as we proceed to final resolution with Microsoft,” said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX President and CEO.”’ Kevin Kutz said Microsoft hadn’t yet seen VirnetX’s new claim. “While we can’t comment specifically about the new complaint because we’ve not been served, Microsoft respects intellectual property, and we believe our products do not infringe the patents involved. Moreover, we believe those patents are invalid. We’ll challenge VirnetX’s claims.”
