Microsoft To Stop Using Computer Code

From Staff And Wire Reports

Microsoft Corp. has been ordered to stop selling development software containing code that Apple Computer Inc. claims was stolen.

A federal judge on Wednesday granted Apple a temporary restraining order barring Microsoft from selling its Video for Windows development kit.

Microsoft also said it would replace the disputed code and release a new version of the Video for Windows kit without the code within two weeks.

Development kits are software that help people write new programs. The kit in question lets users of personal computers with Microsoft’s Windows operating system capture, edit and play back video.

Microsoft, however, again denied Apple’s claim that it had copied part of Apple’s QuickTime software.
