Microsoft sued Lindows.com in December 2001, accusing the company of infringing its “Windows” trademark and asking the court to bar Lindows.com from further using the Lindows name.
The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington in Seattle originally set a trial date in April, but moved that to December to give Lindows.com more time to prepare for the case. The trial has now been pushed back until March 1 because of a scheduling conflict, Lindows.com said in a statement Tuesday.
A court document issued Monday confirms the scheduling change. Parties have to file trial briefs, proposed jury instructions, and other documents by Feb. 25, 2004, according to the document.
