+ - Microsoft Didn't Issue FairUse4WM Takedown Notices

Submitted by

terrencefw writes "Having been the top ranked download site for the FairUse4WM Windows DRM remover utility, I've not yet had my takedown notice. What's more, I don't think Microsoft ever sent any. The origins of the takedowm notices that other sites have received just doesn't fit with a Microsoft-orchestrated operation. There's been no comment from Microsoft on the subject other than vague reassurances to vendors that they'll fix their crummy DRM and the lawsuit against the author, Viodentia, but they've dropped the case against him too."
