* Why MS sues spammers

Yahoo asks the question: Why does Microsoft sue spammers?

And they come up with a small answer.

Is Microsoft's altruism simply out of concern for Internet users' safety? Yes and no, said Yankee Group's Laura DiDio.

"What's at stake here for Microsoft is nothing less than the reputation of its products and the security and functionality of those products," she said.
Well, duh.

Microsoft's business model is built on people buying their products and using them. Any experience that makes using a PC look bad, makes them look bad. Plus, there's the money they spend on their Hotmail division fighting spammers.
