Microsoft’s response to the EU’s £680 million fine:
“We feel that the fine concerns events which are in the past and we’re very much looking to move forward on announcements like opening up code on APIs.”
I’m sitting in a presentation wih some Microsoft guy talking about how it’s important to get the right data, to the right people at the right time with the right processes but in the back of my mind, I’m thinking: the EU has just fined you £680 million!!!!!!!
While getting the right data to the right person is important it’s probably better not to break the law.
