InterTrust broadens suit against Microsoft
Santa Clara, Calif.-based InterTrust makes software that protects songs and videos from being illegally copied. InterTrust has filed two patent infringement suits against Microsoft. In April 2001, it targeted music and video software in Windows Media Player; that suit was later expanded to include Microsoft's Windows XP operating system and .Net initiative. Last month, InterTrust filed a second suit targeting technology that helps connect audio players and other peripherals to PCs.
