LAWSUITS SEEM RIPE FOR NEW ROLL
Seattle Times technology staff  --  May 26 2003

Too bad Microsoft dropped plans for the iLoo Internet-connected portable
toilet.
-
Just weeks after it scuttled the project, word comes from Utah that
reams and reams of internal Microsoft documents and other evidence from
an antitrust case are being turned into toilet paper.
-
A judge agreed to allow the disposal of 937 boxes with 3 million pages
of documents from a legal fight between Microsoft and Caldera that was
settled in 2000.

Microsoft pushes for weakening of anti-spam law
Paul Queary  --  The Associated Press

OLYMPIA Anti-spam activists and a state attorney have argued against
a proposal pushed by Microsoft that would weaken Washingtons tough
law against unwanted e- mail.

The Microsoft bill would cut the minimum award to $10, and cap damages
at $25,000 per day.

The bill, sponsored by Sen. Bill Finkbeiner, R-Kirkland, is being
brought forward in many states, said Scott Hazlegrove, a Microsoft
lobbyist. Its aimed at balancing the interests of consumers who dont
want to be spammed with businesses desire to tap the Internet as an
advertising medium, Hazlegrove said.

Neither Hazlegrove nor Microsoft spokeswoman Stacy Drake would comment
further on the companys motives for proposing the bill.
