Microsoft sues Neb. company, QuickTeq Computers

Microsoft Corp. says a Nebraska computer store has been infringing on its copyrights for Windows software. Microsoft filed a federal lawsuit against QuickTeq Computers and its owner, Kevin Knudson, on Monday.

Knudson declined to comment Wednesday, saying he was still reviewing the lawsuit. Microsoft says in the lawsuit that it sent a letter to QuickTeq in March 2009 warning the company that it was infringing on Microsoft's copyrights.

Microsoft says QuickTeq did not stop and sold a computer with an unauthorized copy of Windows XP Pro software to an investigator earlier this year. QuickTeq has three stores in Lincoln selling computers and offering repair services.
