Claim Construction and the Microsoft Computer Dictionary

computer-dictionary1Have you ever wondered if Microsoft’s computer dictionary has been used against it in patent litigation to construe patent claim terms?  Apparently, at the district court level in Uniloc v. Microsoft an argument was made by Uniloc that relied on Microsoft’s computer dictionary to construe claim language.  That argument was noted in the oral argument of the subsequent appeal to the Federal Circuit  [Listen].  The dictionary argument did not prevail at the district court level, however.
