"Lindows.com Inc. received the following take down notice
concerning its MSfreePC web service designed to help Microsoft
customers process their claims from the $1.1 billion settlement
Microsoft has agreed to pay...
"This firm represents Microsoft Corporation in a class action
pending in San Francisco Superior Court, in which the Court has
recently granted preliminary approval to a settlement. We just
received a copy of a letter sent to you by counsel for the
plaintiffs, raising some concerns about your www.msfreepc.com
website. Our concerns about the website go far beyond those noted
by plaintiffs' counsel. Your unauthorized website offers class
members the opportunity to submit claims under the Microsoft
settlement and obtain an 'Instant Settlement' that they may use to
purchase between $50 to $100 worth of Lindows software. The website
also states that it offers a free PC to 'the first 10,000 people
who buy $100 worth of products.'
"For the reasons set forth below, your website is deceptive,
seriously mischaracterizes the settlement, misleads the public and
encourages class members to submit improper fraudulent claims that
will be denied by the Settlement Claims Administrator. Microsoft
strongly supports the right of the class members to claim benefits
under the settlement and use those benefits to purchase qualifying
computer hardware and/or software of any manufacturer, including
Lindows. Microsoft is also committed to protecting the integrity of
the settlement, the authorized website established by Court order
and the claims process preliminarily approved by the Court..."
