Did Microsoft throw a fixed fight?

From Scripting News: “Zeldman asks the question no one dared ask, did Microsoft want to lose the browser patent case? Postscript: Vincent Flanders dared to ask. “

A disturbing idea, that Microsoft would so devastate the internet space in order to gain themselves.

To me, the real problem here is the idea that a patent can apply to an
innovative software technique. I don’t believe that patents rightfully
exist in software. You cannot steal the code of others, but you can and you should be able to build on the ideas of others.
