Portuguese beat Redmond


The
company that registered the name Microsoft in Portugal nine years before Redmond has decided to sell the name for a million dollars.

Microsoft registered the name in 1981 long before Redmond had the idea. As a result it is the only company that can use the name Microsoft in Portugal. The U.S. company is known in Portugal as MSFT.
