Many of you would have heard of the Eolas court case against Microsoft. Which could cause big problems for web developers with embedded content.

The Eolas matter

I can't believe they're pulling this crap.

You'd think that half a BILLION dollars would be enough to let Microsoft leave MIE the way it is, and have the software giant license the technology.

I personally wrote an email to Eolas and CC'd it to many head honchos in the web design community. You can read about it on my TypePad blog.

Its good thing I suck at Flash and don't make my living off of it, or else I'd be even more p1ssed off.
