Claims copyright
infringement


A Pasay City
school has sued Microsoft for alleged illegal distribution of copyrighted material.

The case claims that Microsoft illegally digitally copied and distributed a locally developed manual on the use of Microsoft Office. The registered copyright of the manual is owned by Southeastern College, which filed the case against Seattle, U.S.-based Microsoft and its Philippine office at the Makati City Regional Trial Court.

It was called "The SEC Microsoft Office XP Manual," and was copyrighted in 2005 by Southeastern College Director, Conrad Mañalac. Microsoft bought licenses to copy the manual and retitle it "Innovate: A Mentor’s Guide to ICT Foundation Competencies." However, in October 2006 it distributed the manual in PDF format through CDs as part of its corporate giveaways during two separate events.

The school said it had not given Microsoft or any other person authority to reproduce and/or distribute the content in CDs. More than 700 copies of the Innovate CDs were allegedly distributed by Microsoft during its two company-sponsored events.
