 THE M.S CAN RECALL THE PRODUCT, SINCE IT IS SOFTWARE WHICH IS ALREADY IN USE CANNOT SUCCEED IN GETTING BACK REALLY. THE CUSTOMER CAN RETURN AT LAST THE CD. BUT CAN NOT DELETE FROM HIS INSTALLED VERSION.

LET US WAIT AND SEE FOR THE M.S ACTION AND REACTION BECAUSE IT IS AN AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT. MAJOR USERS ARE INDIA AND CHAINA.

 No. Current versions of MS office in use will not be affected by this change. Only future users or users from the date the court decides will be affected. (11.1.2010).
