+ - Identity Theft - The Massachusetts AG

Panaqqa writes "It looks like Martha Coakley, the newly sworn in Attorney General of Massachusetts, has been the victim of identity theft. A phone call from Dell computer tipped her off to somebody using her credit card information fraudulently. Interesting that the top prosecutor for the state would admit that the chances of catching the fraudster are "slim to none"."

+ - Microsoft breaks South African Patent Law

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Microsoft is ignoring a South African law that disallows software patents. South Africa does not examine the validity of patents registered, and Microsoft has used this loophold to register illegal patents. Once patents slip through, it can cost up to R1000000 (roughly $142 000) to invalidate the patents. Microsoft's national technical officer suggested that it was the government's fault for not enforcing the law."

After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
