A Chinese court has found Microsoft guilty of infringing on the intellectual property rights of local company Zhongyi Electronic Limited. Beijing Number One Intermediate People's Court found Microsoft had exceeded the scope of a previous agreement to use and sell fonts owned by Zhongyi.

It said Microsoft had installed and used the fonts in eight of its operating systems beyond what had been agreed with Zhongyi. It has ordered Microsoft and its China-based units to immediately stop producing and selling those operating systems.
