Retailers still selling Word with custom XML.

Quote:
Microsoft today said that retailers can continue to sell unmodified versions of Word 2007, even though a court order that required the company to remove custom XML technology from the software took effect Monday.
"Retailers who had already purchased their inventory from Microsoft are permitted to continue selling those copies," said Microsoft spokesman Kevin Kutz today in an e-mail reply to questions after Computerworld noticed online sellers such as Amazon.com selling boxed copies Office 2007 this week.

Hi there

How could they NOT sell it -- the Court decision applies to Canada and USA.
Retaillers aren't stopped from selling existing stocks -- the decision is against MS SUPPLYING FURTHER copies of Office until the court order has been complied with.

Cheers

To further add retailers BOUGHT Office from MS and the ruling said that MS has to cease making and selling products containing the unauthorized code (Word in this case)...not the resellers (retailers)

Wanted to put a further clarification on it before potential questions come up

Thanks Jimbo, and Zidane 24, you two did it again. I never get a chance to be first.

Great work to both of you.
