Word Will Be Heard Sept. 23

It's official. Microsoft will fight a court order denying the sale of Word in the U.S. The approach is two-pronged. First up is a hoped-for emergency stay, which will be heard Sept. 23, a solid month before the ban is to go into effect. At the same time, Redmond is seeking a full appeal.

My guess is that this will still be settled out of court. Meanwhile, new patent suits appear to be cropping up, as noted by InformationWeek.
