Lindows.com wins right to view documents from “Apple vs. Microsoft”

Lindows.com today announced that the United States District Court in Seattle has ordered Microsoft to produce more than 300 boxes of evidence in the “windows” trademark dispute, resulting in a trial delay. The jury trial was scheduled to begin on April 7, 2003, and has now been rescheduled to begin on December 1, 2003. The newly produced documents include documentation from the 1992 Apple vs. Microsoft case. The documents reveal that elements such as windows, icons and menus were not the property of any one company because they were widely used in the computer business. This is contrary to Microsoft’s current argument that they should maintain exclusive use of the word “windows.”
