Summary
  • Microsoft Canada Inc has decided that the recent decision against the company by a US court to remove the DoubleSpace disk compression utility from MS-DOS 6.0 and 6.2 does not apply to products sold outside the US. As a result, Microsoft Canada will continue to sell MS-DOS with DoubleSpace in English and French. In Feb 1994, the US court ruled in favor of Stac Electronics in a case against Microsoft, charging the software company for patent infringement and awarded Stac a settlement of $120 million. Microsoft is appealing the decision. Officials at Stac say that the ruling should apply to all versions of MS-DOS with DoubleSpace produced in the US. The products being shipped to Canada are developed and made in the US. Microsoft officials say that the ruling applies only in the US and have released MS-DOS 6.21, a version that does not include the DoubleSpace utility.
