Re: Why not start a relocate?

Not as unlikely as you might think. Back when this case was first going to court I was in a meeting with MS UK about data protection which included some fairly major MS names. The subject of Irish emails was (inevitably, in the circumstances) raised and a pretty senior MS executive basically said they would fight it all the way to the Supreme Court, and if they lost that they would reincorporate MS elsewhere, with the US as a subsidiary, rather than lose European (and potentially Asian) markets.

So they definitely have contingency plans...
