Microsoft Calls Gates' Microsoft Lobbying “Important Charitable Work”

Angry woman
"Leave the man ALONE!"



Summary: Microsoft's excuse and defense of Bill Gates is noted for humour's sake

YESTERDAY was the last time we wrote about what Gates had done in Spain. It is rather amusing to see how Microsoft describes this man's work [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] and makes up an excuse for why he should be exempted from criminal investigation of crimes he provably committed.



In their letter to the judge in the case, Microsoft's lawyers argued that Gates "should be protected from harassing and time-wasting depositions by those who seek to distract him from his important charitable work." But with flashbacks like Cairo, it's no wonder Gates wasn't exactly keen on sitting down for another few hours. A transcript of the subsequent session hasn't been made public.


The use of the word "harassing" must be appreciated (for humour's value). Mr. Gates has systematically destroyed companies by breaking the law and now that he is approached for some time to tell his story, he is being called one who is "harassed". To make such an allegation is to say that a hit-and-run driver is being just "harassed" by the police vehicle that races up the road, striving to secure "time-wasting depositions."

"The government is not trying to destroy Microsoft, it’s simply seeking to compel Microsoft to obey the law. It’s quite revealing that Mr. Gates equates the two."
