Student 1 – Microsoft 0

Well, well, well, three holes in the ground… it seems that Microsoft has retracted its lawsuit against a student, for selling a copy of Microsoft Windows and Office XP on eBay. Have a read of the story on The Register. My favourite bit is:

“Microsoft has suffered and will continue to suffer substantial and irreparable damage to its business reputation and goodwill as well as losses in an amount not yet ascertained,” it said. “Defendant’s acts of copyright infringement have caused Microsoft irreparable injury.”

Poor Microsoft, suffering irreparable damage from someone selling a copy of XP… read the story for the excellent response!
