Mike Rowe


Recommended Posts

Paul Thurrott of Windows and .NET Magazine tells the story of a Canadian teenager called Mike Rowe who brought down the full wrath of Redmond's lawyers when he set up a website called MikeRoweSoft.com. They sent him a 25-page letter demanding that he hand over the domain name. Rowe goes to the press, his site gets massive interest, his case gets lots of support, and suddenly, Microsoft has backed down, issuing anapology in which the company admitted that it had acted improperly.Hehe, another case of copyright issues...Interestingly enough, this guy is in Gr. 12 in a school only 30 KM from mine.
