Corel, Micrografx settle copyright suit

Corel has settled, for an undisclosed amount, a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by graphics software rival Micrografx earlier this year.

Graphics applications vendor Corel, was sued in January by Micrografx. Micrografx charged Corel with infringement of its intellectual property rights and filed for a temporary restraining order against Corel in a US District Court. The order called for Corel to take its graphics product suite, Print House Magic, off the market until certain disputed features in the product were removed. Micrografx claimed in a statement that Corel lifted features from Micrografx's PC card-creation software.

The Court denied Micrografx's request for a restraining order in April, according to a statement from Corel. That decision was on appeal when yesterday's settlement was reached, Corel said.

According to Corel, the settlement "has no material impact" on either Corel or Micrografx. Corel declined to give more information about the settlement.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
