Petition for the refund of OEM Licenses in the EU 

,----[ Quote ]
| Dear Sir or Madam,
| REF: Unclear refunds of OEM Licenses in Europe
| Legally one could assume that a customer chooses what he/she wants to 
| buy. However it is still impossible today to buy a laptop / computer 
| without a Microsoft license or to have a refund of said Microsoft 
| software, if you do not agree to the Microsoft Licensing policies in 
| which is clearly stated :
| âBy using the software, you accept these terms. If you do not accept 
| them, do not use the software. Instead, contact the manufacturer or 
| installer to determine their return policy for a refund or credit.â

| f5b3d60987b4.pdf
| However this clearly stated OEM License Policy cannot be executed by said 
| customer.
| For a fact, you can only see the license when you are using the software, 
| in most cases the license is not included on paper with the software and 
| in most cases not even in the language of the said customer.
| For a fact the manufacturer or installer refuse to refund or even refer 
| to Microsoft to obtain a refund, which clearly is in violation of the 
| said OEM License Policy. Weâd like to urge the European Commission to 
| take action and to make it possible to apply the License Policy of 
| Microsoft and the law in favor of the consumer.
| We have studied the Licenses of the majority of Microsoft Operating 
| Systems and have discovered that they all apply.
