Panel discussion on how to tackle Microsoft Tax...


As a Digital Consumer Rights activist, I started a modest campaign by filing a case against HP when they forced me to buy a laptop mandatorily with windows. The panel discussion will focus on making people aware about indian laws such as competition comission act and how other countries have tackled this matter. I strongly believe that more people should come ahead to make this campaign stronger. The discussion would thus focus on creating awarness among people about their digital rights and what should be the next step and for those who are buying a new laptop how to go about protecting ones rights.
