All patent applications are signed under penalty of perjury. However, the US Patent and Trademark office disbanded its enforcement department in 1974. So, you can perjure yourself on a patent application with impunity.
Unless it's testimony in a criminal case, or the perjury trap in front of a grand jury, or something they want to prosecute like lying on your tax form, the Federal government is in general lassiez faire about perjury, or even encouraging of it with their reluctance to prosecute, especially perjury committed by a so-called intellectual property holder.
Well, technically you could have them line up for comment.
I see three things that are properly called "press releases" in the headlines of Slashdot this morning. It's a typical beginner mistake. Please stop.
Well I don't think MSFT or any corp is gonna have to worry about the EU for much longer as it looks like France along with several other countries are getting ready to bail and leave Mama Merkel and her Syrian migrants to it. Can't say as I blame 'em, ever since Merkel opened the floodgates its been a disaster, rape has risen several thousand percent, countries like Sweden having to tell their women not to go out alone at night in their own country for fear of rape gangs, and a bill of 50 billion and counting just for Germany to keep all these uneducated men on the dole.
So MSFT frankly ought to just ignore them, the EU will be nothing but a memory soon enough.
That is the same reason the wife and I have been using Walmart for our online shopping, as it often has prices the same or less than Amazon, cheaper shipping and as a nice bonus a full 2/3rds of the items we purchased last holiday had a "free ship to store" option with many having same day or next day pickup.
Maybe now that Amazon have lowered the shipping we might do more shopping there...then again Walmart recently lowered their free shipping minimum to $25 and most small items we can get free shipping to our local Walmart so I don't have to come up with a bunch of stuff to put in the cart when I just need a flash stick or MicroSD card.
Really earlier than that, Fermi expected it and had equipment shielded and double-shielded when testing the first nuclear bomb. But we should not confuse cosmic rays and EMP.
