"Far be it for me to defend Microsoft, but I think this might be a case of the European Union trying to push an American company around just because they're American."

"If Microsoft has to give away all of the information Europe wants them to, they will be shooting themselves in the foot."

Hey, if you don't want to play the game and follow the rules, take your business elsewhere. That's how it is supposed to work, right? Oh yeah, that's only the right thing if it's not your company that needs to comply.
