Microsoft drops lawsuit against Viodentia Today, Microsoft has dropped its lawsuit against "Viodentia", the team that created FairUSE4WM which easily circumvented Microsoft's PlaysForSure DRM.
After charging "Viodentia" with copyright infringment for creating FairUSE4WM they voluntarilly dismissed the claims in Seattle Federal court today.

Why did Microsoft drop the case? They simply could not locate the team, and "serve them with process".
