burgburgburg writes "News.com has this story about a California woman suing Microsoft, Symantec and others, seeking class-action status on behalf of all Californians who've bought software including Norton Antivirus 2002, Norton Systemworks and Windows XP Upgrade. She claims that the companies have devised a scheme to sell software licenses without allowing purchasers to review the license prior to sale. She also claims that people who reject the license cannot return the software to the store. She bases this on her rejecting the EULAs for the software mentioned above, going back to CompUSA and being told she couldn't return them because the boxes were opened."
When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one,
an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.
