Microsoft Admits That MikeRoweSoft Threat Is A Publicity Nightmare

from the make-it-go-away dept

Instead of sticking to their legal guns, it appears that someone with a little more business sense noticed all of the publicity over the whole MikeRoweSoft flap, and has decided it’s much better to just make this go away. Thus, Microsoft is now admitting that, perhaps, they went a little too far in their legal threats to Mike Rowe, and are talking with him to come to an amicable agreement that will get this story out of the news as quickly as possible.
