Someone at sue-happy company PalTalk just got paid. Microsoft has settled with the company that filed suit against the Xbox 360 maker over patent infringement claims related to Halo multiplayer. Make it rain, PalTalk!
PalTalk hit Microsoft with a suit over a pair of patents in 2006, claiming that the multiplayer tech that powered some Xbox Live multiplayer games violated technology patents for "ways to control interactive applications over multiple computers," according to Bloomberg. Those patents were purchased from MPath Interactive Inc. by PalTalk for a sum of $200,000.
