Aussie inventor settles with Microsoft in patent dispute.

http://www.smh.com.au/it-pro/business-it/aussie-inventor-settles-with-microsoft-in-patent-dispute-20120315-1v5zc.html

" Ric Richardson, the Australian "man in a van" who has been fighting Microsoft in an eight-year legal battle has settled with the software giant
out of court in a deal that could potentially net hundreds of millions
of dollars. "

""""""""

The beautiful mind of the Aussie who beat Microsoft

Right... I hope you don't expect Linux people to get excited about that just because it is Microsoft that he "beat".
- At least one of the stories is PR nonsense posing as journalism.
- He beat them based on his software patent!
- The patent is for DRM!
- He also goes around patenting nonsense things like compression methods for "reducing the size of stored digital data by up to 98 per cent"
