Cost cutting

 

Microsoft is celebrating only spending $511 million on legal bills this year.

Two years earlier the outfit had to pay $2.3 billion in payouts.

According to the Seattle Pi , the $511 million included payments in antitrust and unfair-competition class actions, intellectual property claims and a payment to extend a patent agreement with Sun Microsystems.

The company's highest-profile antitrust payout was the settlement of a consumer class-action suit in Iowa. Microsoft agreed to pay up to $180 million in that case.
