Microsoft sued over VPN patents

VirnetX is seeking damages and an injunction against the Redmond, Wash., software giant.

Software company VirnetX said Thursday that it is suing Microsoft over two virtual private network (VPN) technology patents. VirnetX, which is based in Scotts Valley, Calif., filed its suit in the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, seeking damages and an injunction against Microsoft.

In its suit, VirnetX said that Microsoft is infringing on its two patents, but does not list which specific Microsoft products it says are infringing. A Microsoft representative said the company has yet to be served with court papers in the case, so it has not seen or reviewed the complaint.
