Free Adobe Plugins

Get a growing set of (mostly free) Photoshop filters / plugins coded by richard rosenman. Most were developed because I found myself in need of something like this in the past for production. Others were developed because I foresee the need for them in the future. The remaining odd few were developed merely for the fun of it. They are not necessarily only limited to Adobe Photoshop and they work with many other graphic applications so long as they adhere to Adobe's plugin specifications. If you are unsure, click to see the compatibility list. To download a plugin, simply click the "Download" link or click on the image. Finally, please check back often as I intend to continually update this setion with more plugins.

Microsoft permanently barred from selling Word

Microsoft permanently barred from selling Word
By Matthew DeCarlo,
Published: August 12, 2009, 10:31 AM EST

Microsoft has been ordered by a US District Court to halt sales of its popular word processing application, Word. Judge Leonard Davis has ruled that the software-giant is guilty of patent infringement and has prohibited it from selling, importing, testing, demonstrating or marketing any Microsoft Word products able to open XML, DOCX, or DOCM files (XML) files containing custom XML.

Plaintiff i4i sued Microsoft in March 2007 claiming that it violated a 1998 software patent (number 5,787,449) for a document system that eliminated the need for manually embedded formatting codes. One of the fundamental features of the markup language XML is that it is readable by both people and machines. XML allows developers and users to define their own tags for data - unlike other markup languages like HTML which have predefined tags.

Microsoft has already paid $200 million after a federal jury ruled that the XML properties of Word 2003 and Word 2007 infringed on i4i's patent. Redmond accumulated another $77 million in fees after the most recent ruling, $40 million for willful patent infringement and $37 million in prejudgment interest. The company must comply within 60 days and is planning to appeal the verdict.
