EULA comes 'round to bite Microsoft in the butt

Post by The Masked Marauder » Tue Apr 01, 2008 9:10 pm

Microsoft EULA lands it with $175m Indian tax headache

"The Product is licensed, not sold."

Those six words just cost Microsoft's Indian operation $87.5m (350 crore) in tax payments and the same again in interest.

Basing its ruling on the terms of Microsoft's own EULA (end-user license agreement), an Indian court has ordered the company to pay tax on royalty income generated in the country, Tax India Online (TIOL) reports.
