getthedaily.com After a five year legal battle, Microsoft has been ordered to fork over 512-million dollars to Alcatel-Lucent for patent infringement on the company’s software and stylus-based tablet computers. Microsoft plans to appeal the decision. ComScore has reported that online video views have remained flat for this year. The company said that the number of videos people are viewing is only slightly higher than 2007 but the time viewers spend watching viral videos has jumped almost 45-percent since last year. And in a deal that could provide wireless broadband access to more than 50-percent of Americans within four years, the FCC will auction-off free wireless spectrum later this week. The deal will also include a provision that filters out obscene content.
