Luca Bonissi bought a Lenovo laptop which came with a pre-installed Windows license he didn't need. He asked for refund, Lenovo refused.

After a 2-year court case, Lenovo had to pay 20,000 euros in damages for abusive behavior.

Mark reshared this.

It always amazes me that a corporation can look at someone who compiles their own operating system for political reasons, and say "nah, not that stubborn, they'll give up quickly"
2 years... I got my refund after only a few phone calls... (14 years ago)

wait, he bought a product which was advertised(?) including Windows, demanded a refund for a part of the package he bought, didn't get it, took it to the court and won?
Yes, because the licence is binding on the retailer to do that if you disagree with the terms.
