Italians threaten suit over Windows pre-install

Refund retail price.

The refund should be the retail price of Windows not the (smaller) amount that the OEM paid for it. The OEM and retailer will both have added their markup to the price of the PC - both hardware and software.

Brit ISPs censor Wikipedia over 'child porn' album cover

IP forgery

Maybe the people affected by this should complain to their ISPs that they are forging the origin of the page requests. RFC 2616 states (section 14.45) that proxies MUST insert a "Via:" header to indicate the origin of the request to the destination HTTP server. If the ISPs were doing this, then Wikipedia would detect it and there would not be the problem of all then users seeming to come from the same IP address.
