Adobe, Macromedia and window technology
Adobe is suing Macromedia for violating a registered US patent. Macromedia is said to have stolen the window technology from Adobe. This window technique allows a tab to be transformed into its own window by dragging it onto the desktop.
After Adobe, according to its own statements, has pointed this out to Macromedia several times and now the window technique is used again in Flash 5.0, Adobe sees no other option but to take legal action to protect their rights and ultimately act '... in the interests of the shareholders ...'. Macromedia rejects the allegations.
