Apple Wins Legal Maneuver: A U.S. District Court judge has granted Apple Computer's request that Microsoft's best-selling Windows 3.0 software program be included in Apple's copyright infringement lawsuit against Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard. The original lawsuit included only an earlier version of Windows. But Judge Vaughn R. Walker rejected an Apple motion to invalidate a 1985 licensing agreement between the two companies that has served as Microsoft's primary defense in the high-stakes case and, unexpectedly, refused to allow Apple to seek damages for breach of that contract.
