Microsoft, Adobe in the spotlight of a new patent suit

Tyler (TX) – Unknown company Aloft Media has filed a lawsuit against Microsoft and Adobe, alleging the two giants infringed on a pair of patents it owns concerning graphical browser interfaces.

Aloft says the patents, which it described as a “network browser graphical user interface for managing web content” and a “network browser window with adjacent identifier selector interface for storing web content”,  contained ideas that were used in Microsoft’s Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 7.

Additionally, Aloft claims Adobe’s Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Professional, and Acrobat 3D infringed on the same patents.

Aloft, a relatively new company that specializes in digital media, is seeking unspecified damages.
