Fair enough :)

M$ is used to being sent to the court room anyway, so Bill isn't too worried.

This news is so old. I read about it last month. The sound file in question was a contractual job and the firm that produced it was using a pirated copy of SoundForge. Microsoft isn't liable. The firm they hired to do the job is.

Yes, last month, because there was talk of this on several forums LONG before it ended up in the news. The first official story I know of came out around Nov 12th. You'll also find that most of the files in that folder are similar, because they were created by the same firm. They outsourced all the audio material for their tours.
