Fightin' Word

On Monday, I told you about a court order preventing the sale of Word in the U.S., an order that I believe doesn't actually go into effect for a few months.

If you thought Microsoft was going to take this lying down, then you know nothing about how this firm operates. It doesn't take anything lying down, not even a nap. That's why it's no surprise that Microsoft is going back to court, trying to reverse the ruling tout de suite.

There's no saying when or if a stay will be ordered, but emergency motions such as this tend to get heard fast.
