Microsoft has a Fit over Screenshots

Source Title:
Screenshots called back...
Story Text:

Microsoft are asking that Longhorn screenshots released at WinHEC be removed from websites. Many users have posted pics of the new OS on personal blogs, news sites, etc over the last few days.

Product manager Greg Sullivan said Microsoft has not yet patented and copyrighted certain components of Longhorn, and the language added to the license agreement banning screenshots is aimed at protecting the company's intellectual property in the interim.

It looks doubtful that Microsoft would actually sue anyone who didn't remove the screenshots, but you've been warned...

Paul Thurrott's Windows SuperSite is one of many windows resource sites to have already pulled the shots at Microsoft's "request".

Images seem to have been removed.
