Apple May Owe Microsoft For Every iPod Sold

A little off topic, I know, but ... meh, it's a Sunday.

Apparently Apple was a little late in their patent filing with the iPod and Microsoft may have rights to some of the key components, including music menu software. According to this article in the Independent, Apple may end up owing Microsoft up to $10 a pod.

Naturally, there will be some lawyers getting paid overtime before this is all through.
