Microsoft settles advertising lawsuit


It is being reported that Microsoft has settled with the novelty company Cellrderm following mediation. The litigation, filed back in July, that claimed Microsoft infringed upon copyrighted content with their "Really?" Windows Phone ad campaign.  Cellrderm ran a similar set of commercials for their novelty cellular abuse aids.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. Who knows if Cellrderm had a leg to stand on in this suit but with Microsoft settling, they can concentrate on more important matters at hand. Like the U.S. launch of the Nokia Windows Phone and a $100M+ marketing campaign for Windows Phone.

If you're curious how similar the Microsoft and Cellrderms ads are, just hit the break to catch all four.
