Microsoft Sues Tomagotchi

Redmond WA, (AP). Microsoft (MSFT) has announced a 54 million dollar
lawsuit against Tomagotchi maker, Bandai. Microsoft is claiming that the
Tomagotchi (the Japanese electronic pet that's all the rage with the kids)
is an infringement of its intellectual property.

Microsoft spokesperson, Erik Loregard stated, "'Software that needs
constant, even hourly attention, or else it dies?' sounds like Windows to
me. This is clearly an infringement on our technology."

The Bandai company spokesman refused to comment on the suit.
