    • Thanks for the heads up. I just read it now. To say the information is limited is an understatement. I couldn't imagine a Chinese company taking microsoft software and selling it as their own, that would never happen. Too bad they can't become a little pain in the #$%$ for microsoft so they could go to petty cash and just hand over a hundred mil to buy them just to get rid of them.

    • It's good news but in reality as efut said in the filing that deal was confidential but it was immaterial to its business and financial - so efut and msft probably settled for like 50k or nothing with efut agreeing to license its software for say 20k a year

    • I checked both Corporate websites for press releases and there were none regarding this news. It must have been real confidential since no one seems to have released it.

    • That info I got from TD Ameritrade...Came out at 11am yesterday
