Get out the magnifying glass

Do you read the copyright notice on web pages? Neither do I. But Microsoft filed a new case against Lindows, the San Diego company which markets a service for Linux that runs Windows programs accusing it of trying to confuse users with the small print "Lindows" on its copyright notices. The company recently changed the name of their product to "Linspire" after losing a number of infringement cases to the Redmond bullies, but corporate name changes take longer (especially when there's really no need to change).

Evidently Bill Gates & Co don't think they've already given enough free publicity to a company which hardly threatens their hegemony!
