Microsoft's legal bill 'too big'

Microsoft is objecting to the size of legal bills submitted by lawyers who brought an anti-trust case in California against the software giant.

Microsoft told a California court that consumers could suffer if it has to pay the full $258m (£146.7m) bill.

It's a lot of money. I cna't help but feel that M$ is getting attacked from every angle. The lawyer fees are ridiculously high, almost like everyone wants a big slice of the cake. On the other hand, such a big cake shouldn't exist in the first place.

This is chump change to M$.

Why would the consumer suffer? Greedy fucking bastards. So they do something wrong, get caught and fined, and now they want to take that out on their customers?

Legal fees are a cost of doing business and are always calculated into the products and services you are selling, just like utility bills and insurance. It is dishonest for the lawyers to inflate their charges and expect to be paid. If MS weren't a bunch of crooks they wouldn't be in this predicament in the first place.

Here is a classic case of two bunches of lying, thieving bastards trying to screw anybody and everybody. Which group of pond scum do you root for?

Microsoft has been the main thing that has been pushing me towards Linux (and Mac) lately.

Their business practices are .... there aren't even any words to describe how bad they are :wacko:

Not for a 36 billion dollar and beyond company.

The fines didn't even put a dent in them.

It's like being run into by a fly.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
