Kudos
An excellent example of "just because you can do something doesn't mean you should."  I especially like that "Smith said Microsoft will incorporate this change into its terms of service to clarify its commitment to customers and to make it binding."  Not 100% foolproof, but an excellent start. Kudos Microsoft.
