Small company may bring down Microsoft
Fortune | Submitted by: Soylent
"InterTrust is seeking an injunction barring distribution of about 85% of Microsoft's product line. (Though the DRM and trusted systems technologies form only a piece of each product, they have been, in Microsoft's trademark fashion, tightly integrated into these larger programs.)

Stalin still lives
BBC | Submitted by: Phatlor

Barry Shein on the spam problem
Internet Week | Submitted by: Soylent
"The real cost is borne by enterprises and Internet service providers, like his company, that need to pay for increased bandwidth, server capacity, and-- especially-- staff to block spam and field help-desk complaints from users who don't understand that the spam isn't coming from Shein, and there's very little he can do about it. Shein estimates that about 30 percent of staff expenses at his 20-person company is now spent either putting in spam filters, or talking to customers on the phone about spam, or about false positives, legitimate e-mail that gets erroneously tagged as spam and blocked."
