PRESS RELEASE ( PR Web) Office 2003 may carry end-user risk, says inventor

Computer users considering Microsoft Office 2003, to be released tomorrow, should be informed of any potential risks associated with patents pending, says Eric Wilson, inventor of 'Document Display System and Method' technology. Mr. Wilson warns end-users will be pursued for additional royalties and special conditions, if patent applications are granted and use of Office 2003 infringes. The inventor cites concerns over features found in a trial version of Office known as 'Beta 2', which was distributed to over 500,000 people.
