Microsoft’s Alcatel Infringement Was Pervasive, Lawyer Says

Microsoft Corp. engaged in “pervasive” infringement of an Alcatel-Lucent patent in the software maker’s development of its Outlook program, said a lawyer for France’s largest telecommunications equipment maker.

“It really is pervasive in Outlook, particularly in Calendar,” Alcatel-Lucent lawyer Luke Dauchot told a jury in federal court in San Diego in his closing argument today. He said the “Day patent,” as it was described during the trial, “provided an easy, fast, reliable way of using Outlook.”
