Has everyone heard about this stupid Eolas vs Microsoft lawsuit?

Basically any <OBJECT> tag that references a linked file. (ex. music or video file) has to be changed. And its not like you can't do it anymore, you just have to do it a “certain” way. What kinda bullshit is that? All they did was make it harder, not really stop it. What a waste of thousands of web site developer's time across the world.

See this article:,14179,2914671,00.html

I hate these stupid companies and their dumb lawsuits. Like the “one click” shopping lawsuit with Amazon or whatever. These stupid dot com companies aren't making any real money so they try and reek havoc on those who are.
