LXer: Texas Judge Bans Microsoft From Selling Word in the U.S.

Published at LXer:

A Texas court has banned sales of Microsoft Word and copies of Microsoft Office containing word until a final decision is reached in a copyright infringement trial. Microsoft has 60 days to cease sales.</p>
[At first I thought it was on The Onion. Also note that it says "copyright" but means "patents". -J.]

Well, the 60 days are up, and Steve Ballmer is going to have a seizure...
Microsoft said the ban would prohibit the sale of all available versions of Microsoft Word and Microsoft Office software.
Now that those who're breaking the law are no longer calling the shots in US politics, the US Justice system finally can do justice afterall

(expect stocks in wood, woodworking factories and especially furniture makers to reach historical heights in the next few days )
