    Microsoft Hit by First Successful Windows 10 Forced Upgrade Lawsuit

    Microsoft has been hit by the first successful lawsuit over its forced Windows 10 upgrade. The first of possibly many, Teri Goldstein from California, successfully sued Microsoft for $10,000 in damages and legal fees over its deceptively designed Windows 10 upgrade software, which automatically downloaded and upgraded her computer's Windows 7 installation almost without the consent of the user. She convinced the court that the upgrade made her computer slower, and that she lost business due to the upgrade process and the slowing down of her computer. Microsoft dropped its appeal and paid up.

    Microsoft is heavily criticized for the way it distributes its free Windows 10 upgrade for PCs with Windows 7 and Windows 8. What started out as an optional upgrade, quickly evolved into an almost unavoidable upgrade that forces itself upon the users, through clever design of the upgrade software's user interface. Microsoft recently changed Windows 10 upgrade into a "recommended update" for Windows 7/8, making users with auto-install for recommended updates discover that their machines have been upgraded almost without their consent. Could this be the first of many successful lawsuits over this issue at least in a precedent-driven American civil justice system?

  3. Microsoft Files Lawsuits Against 52 Counterfeit Sellers

    Microsoft has taken an extra step in its fight against software piracy by filing lawsuits against 52 alleged resellers of counterfeit software, and has referred 22 piracy cases to law enforcement agencies in 20 different countries. According to the company, 15 of the lawsuits involve software which has been traced back to what is believed to be the largest ever counterfeit software syndicate, which was broken up by Microsoft and law enforcement officials from the US and China earlier this year. Microsoft is also working with eBay to produce the “Microsoft Buying Guide” to inform consumers of how to safely buy software from sites such as eBay.

    Opera Files Lawsuit Against Microsoft

    Opera Software, best known for its free web browser, has filed an antitrust lawsuit against software giant Microsoft for abusing its dominant position by integrating its Internet Explorer web browser into Windows. Opera, which filed the lawsuit in the EU, is asking the European Commission to force Microsoft to unbundle Internet Explorer from Windows or include other browsers as standard. It is also claiming that Microsoft is not following accepted standards for Internet Explorer and is calling for it to adhere to them. Opera’s Deputy General Counsel, Jason Hoida, said:
    Some people may remember that Microsoft was forced to sell a modified version of Windows XP which excluded Windows Media Player back in 2004 after complaints about that being integrated into Windows, which was a similar case to this.
