+ - Microsoft sued for adding language support

Submitted by

Salvance writes "In an odd twist to the never ending stream of Microsoft lawsuits, a tribe in Chile is trying to sue Microsoft because the Redmond based company added support for the Chilean tribe's language. The Mapuche' tribe contends that Microsoft did not own the language, and did not receive permission from the 400,000 member strong tribe's leaders to release the language pack in their native tongue.

If the lawsuit is successful (which is possible given the Mapuche's strong influence in Chile), what does the future of localization and language support look like for Microsoft and other software vendors?"

So... did you ever wonder, do garbagemen take showers before they go to work?

Working...
