So let calculate:
We got a few years ago a letter from Getty because we were using an image from them on our website. This image was sold to us from an freelancer on “rent-a-coder” website. They asked us to pay 5000 USD for this image.
So we can calculate now how many images were shown in the widget. And again you can see how stupid companies act. Finaly then lawyers are the once who earn.

I wonder if Microsoft is going to try to imitate a Richard Stallman-like approach to copyright as a result of this.

Wait… what was I thinking? [B]NO WAY[/B] Microsoft will will actually see the light in the near future.
