I would like to report a big success here. I recently got a HP 6710b
laptop and (as usual) didn't agreed with the Windows License terms and
conditions (so I can send it back and get the license money).

Are you being serious about getting your money back? Are you successful
in it in the UK?

I don't know about the UK. I sent them back my licenses in the
Netherlands, where I live now. I told them in a very formal letter that
I didn't agreed about the terms and conditions, and, as I never used the
licenses (it was a new computer) I got my money back.

I recommend everybody to at least try. :) It's not possible that the
only way to buy computers is swallowing licenses we will not use.

Hey, that's a good news!

did anybody in Germany succeeded to do that? I am planning to buy a new
laptop, and this information is vital for me..


Wow. This is pioneering :-) How did you do this? Why don't you just give
us the copy of your letter? I guess you have found a way in using the
complicated lisence ageement in our favour. I will send some letters as
well. I've got 125 lisences which I don't want to use :-)


I guess that was incidentally sent personally to me.


P.S.: Actually it is not pioneering at all. Google it. I read something
similar in slashdot long time ago, but that was in Australia. That's the
first case I hear about in EU.
There was a fellow in New York by the name of Adam Kosmin who set up a
website '' in 1992, now called ''
documenting some of these things.
