Ilse wasn't amused: the company is a fierce competitor of MSN on the Dutch market. Although only a dozen internet users must have used Microsoft's software, Ilse threatened Microsoft with legal action. Microsoft told Dutch news site Planet Multimedia today it will pay Ilse €10.000 to compensate for legal costs, despite the fact that the bug has already been fixed in the new version of Windows AntiSpyware, which was released last week.
This does beg the question, of course, as to what else is blocked by the new Microsoft software, and what other legal battles are on the way.
