Quarter-billion Euro fine for MS

Better still, MS were ordered to play fairer from now on & the fine-rate was raised for the next offence.

Now, a 280 million Euro fine is hardly going to bankrupt MS, but it might seriously get their attention, especially if they’re totting up more fines at three million Euro a day while they refuse to pay attention.

This might also inspire other enforcers to stand up for themselves, and I suspect that MS working to avoid that will have a more positive effect than the fines per se.

By the way, that's a third of a billion USD$, which turns out to be a shadow under half a billion AUD$. I could probably retire OK on that...
