Giant killer.

Zamosvsmicrosoft

21 year old student legitimately sells unopened Microsoft software on eBay. Microsoft sues him, threatens to seize his car, student fights. Gasp…wins. Crowd cheers. Goliath, meet David.

 Economically speaking, it was a lopsided fight. Last year, Zamos earned approximately $3,500. Microsoft: $38 billion. During the whole debacle, Zamos says, he actually talked to a company lawyer only once. Robert Chudakoff, who has specialized in intellectual-property law for 25 years, apparently believed he had the kid on the ropes. “I asked him what he wanted from me,” says Zamos. “He said I needed to pay restitution. I said I had nothing to pay with, and he said, ‘You have a car.’ Yeah, like they’re gonna take my 2002 Ford Escort. I looked it up anyway, and they can’t take your car unless it’s collateral.”
