Buy stuff or be sued

Microsoft is angering its Indian business partners by threatening to sue them if they do not buy more of its software.

According to DQ Channel, Microsoft's resellers are getting strange calls from lawyers acting on behalf of the software giant.They are being told that partners should start buying more Microsoft products or else face action from the company.

Said one channel partner from New Delhi said that a lawyer had called him to say that he had not been buying from the Microsoft distributors lately. She suggested that I should buy some quantity of software from the distributors this month to avoid any action against me.

Microsoft categorically denied any such practice and says it was surprised to hear about it. Another software-focused partner from Dehradun complained that he has been getting calls from Microsoft asking me to increase business opportunities for the company.
