Summary:
Portable navigation company TomTom, recently sued by Microsoft for patent infringement, has countered with its own lawsuit alleging that Microsoft's Streets & Trips product infringes on TomTom's patents. The suit (PDF, 8 pages) cites four patents and says Microsoft's use of the technology "has been and continues to be willful and without license from TomTom." Microsoft last month sued TomTom for violation of eight of its patents. The case has received widespread attention in part because some of the technology in dispute involve TomTom's implementation of the Linux kernel -- the first time Microsoft has filed patent litigation over the open-source operating system.
