Microsoft At It Again…

Ross has a scathing post on Microsoft. Having competed against them for many years this is an all too familiar scene.

…now, with MSN Filter, the convicted monopolist, is creating their own nanopublishing venture — competing against it’s customers. That’s OK in monopoly land. Where profit is a function of property, and eminent domain falsely considered a right.

He goes on to flag a defining issue – that is – who owns your post when contributing to MSN Filter. In this case it is Microsoft. To any blogger this should represent an almightly stop sign. Microsoft, in the process of corrupting definitions of Wikis and the like is insulting our intelligence. Saddly this babble looks to be coming from a PR person.
