You Paid Microsoft, Now You Can't Sue
If you buy and then use certain software products from Microsoft, you agree (remember clicking that little "I agree" box?) to the license terms. The newest licenses have a new twist. If you buy and the software utterly stinks, you can't be part of a class action lawsuit.
At first blush this seems pretty bogus. But so do most class action lawsuits. These suits are designed to do one thing: make the lawyers rich. Plaintiffs are lucky enough to get a piece of Bazooka Joe out of the deal.
Looks like this may extend to all Microsoft products.
What is your take on all this? Don't tell it to the judge, tell it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
