Summary This program revisits the story of an inventor from Byron Bay whose battle with Microsoft has made headlines around the world. We first brought you the story of Ric Richardson three years ago, when an American court had just awarded him $US 400 million in damages over anti-piracy software he'd invented. But what appeared to be a done deal was swiftly overturned when a judge threw out the finding, sending Ric Richardson and his company back into the courts for another round of legal wrangling.Nearly a decade after proceedings first commenced, Ric and his team have finally triumphed. And now he's using his hard won knowledge to 'give back' and help other inventors around the country
