The Supreme Court on Monday refused to consider an appeal by Microsoft
Corp. in a case involving claims by a privately held California
software firm and the University of California that Microsoft
infringed their patents with its Internet Explorer browser.

Without comment, the high court rejected an appeal by Microsoft that
it said involved more than 64 percent of the $521 million patent
infringement ruling against the software giant.

Microsoft sought review of an appeals court ruling that allows the
privately held firm Eolas Technologies Inc. and the University of
California to seek royalties based on the foreign manufacture and sale
of an infringing software-related product.
