After winning decisively against Autodesk and Microsoft -- and making $140 million off the two companies --, Z4 is launching another lawsuit.
This time it is over the activation process in Vista and Office 2007. Z4 says the changes Microsoft made were insignificant, and thus worthy of being dragged back into the courts. Autodesk does not seem to be targeted this time around.
Some more details on the first law suit:
-- The judge added $25 million more in damages against Microsoft for litigation misconduct because it withheld evidence of its actions and did other nasty stuff.
-- Autodesk had to pay $322,000 in attorney fees, in addition to its $18 million fine.
