UK High Court beckons for Windows vendor and reseller amid claims of on-prem software license skullduggery

The Register - Judge dismisses Microsoft's challenges: ValueLicensing case to proceed in Britain

The ValueLicensing case against Microsoft is set to proceed in the UK after a judge dismissed the Windows vendor's jurisdictional challenge and strike-out application.

Microsoft had hoped to have its UK arm struck off from the claim and suggested that Ireland would be a better place for the claim to be heard, particularly if the company was successful in getting its UK offshoot removed.

Mr Justice Picken disagreed and dismissed Microsoft's challenges, meaning that the damages claim (and Microsoft's defense) will be heard in the High Court in England and Wales.
