Microsoft: We took MikeRoweSoft too seriously

Surprise, surprise. Just included this so those who were following this after I referred to it in another entry.

The article is also uplifting since it underscores just how much of a voice we bloggers are starting to have: "However, after the case received widespread coverage on the Internet, Microsoft acknowledged that it may have taken things too far and promised to treat Rowe fairly.

A representative of the software company told ZDNet UK: "We appreciate that Mike Rowe is a young entrepreneur who came up with a creative domain name.

We take our trademark seriously, but maybe a little too seriously in this case.'"

Yeah for Bloggers....
