The Shanghai Daily reports that a man has taken his case to the Haidian District People’s Court in Beijing for his piracy warning to be removed from his computer stating that Microsoft “…has no right to penalize users by intruding on their computers.”
This latest move by Microsoft has been pretty much universally condemned by the Chinese press. The article also makes reference to a statement by the China Computer Federation that the Evil Empire should have taken judicial measures within the laws of China to pursue piracy rather than through the malware update.
Suggestions have also been made to State Administration for Industry and Commerce by a Beijing Lawyer that Microsoft should be fined US$1 billion for their stunt.
