MICROSOFT SUIT FILED BY APPLE TO BE SEPARATED INTO TWO PARTS

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft Corp has been granted a request to separate the suit filed against it by Apple Computer Inc into two separate parts – one relating to the 1985 licence agreement between the two, the other to the look-and-feel issue: Microsoft reckons that the licence issue is the key to the entire case, and that if is settled in Microsoft’s favour, the rest of the suit will lapse; the licence issue could be heard as early as October, but the look-and-feel issue will likely have to wait until late 1989, and might not come to trial until 1990.
