Short Take: Sun files to revive Microsoft preliminary injunction

Sun Microsystems asked a federal court in San Jose, California, to reinstate a preliminary injunction vacated by a three-judge appeals panel late last month. Judge Ronald Whyte had required Microsoft to make its Java offerings meet specifications required by Sun, finding the latter was likely to prove that Microsoft's Java products violate Sun's copyrights, but the appeals court disagreed and sent the injunction back for further consideration. Judge Whyte will hear Sun's two newest motions, which are under seal, on October 15.
