What would make a small technology company to sue the biggest technology company in the world? The answer is, stealing from them and for intellectual and copyright theft. And knowingly or unknowingly Microsoft just did that with Plurk and later apologized, however, all’s not well yet.
Plurk is still pursuing legal options out there, and who would not, after all you got a cash cow on their knees to apologize to you:
We are currently looking at all possibilities on how to move forward in response to Microsoft’s recent apology statement. We are still thinking of pursuing the full extent of our legal options available due the seriousness of the situation. Basically, Microsoft accepts responsibility, but they do not offer accountability.
We think this is the best way to go forward for Plurk, after all would Microsoft spare Plurk, if they caught them using pirated versions of Windows?
Pardon the satirical views, but I could not resist on this one.
