Microsoft Injunction

Microsoft Corporation lost a legal suit resulting in an injunction against their Word 2003 and 2007 products regarding the use of custom-XML editing abilities. The SHSU campus is not immediately affected by this injunction, although we will be updating the installed versions across campus to comply.

If you do not know what custom-XML editing does for Word 2007, you are likely not affected by this change and will see no difference in Word. If you are concerned with the feature being removed, please email us so we may work together in identifying an appropriate solution before our official cut-off date.

If you are using Office products at your home acquired through the Home Use Program available to all faculty and staff, you are not affected by this injunction. Please contact Microsoft directly with any questions related to your home use and this injunction.
