Microsoft Sued in China

 


China E-commerce is a small company based in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province. Now the Xi'an Intermediate People's Court has accepted the case in which China E-commerce requests Microsoft to stop the infringement and stop selling Vista, which adopted RSS technology in China.

 

Microsoft reportedly responded to the issue last Friday, saying it has never violated the intellectual property rights of China E-commerce.
The specific patent is for "an XML-based RSS information interactive processing approach", according to information on the SIPO's website. RSS is used to syndicate XML-based files from blogs, websites, and other Internet platforms.
