The figure you mention as being awarded to Alcatel in the mp3 patent violation case is wrong. The jury awarded $US1.5 billion, not million.

Yep Chully, 1.5 billion is more than a pinch, even in today's currency. Bet that Don was just thinking in 1990 dollars :D

I definitely missed a letter, didn't I? I'm just glad I wasn't the one that lost that case. Even so, after it gets whittled down by the appeals court, it could wind up closer to the million mark. Assuming MS is appealing.
