| The tape disappearance was blamed on HP, which accepted the blame,
| and the employees directly involved kept expecting there to be

| Burst lawyers. But it never happened.
| This was, for Microsoft, a perfect ending. ..."

| In May 2004, Judge J. Frederick Motz ordered Microsoft to
| investigate Burst.com's claim that, in 2000, Allchin ordered
| Microsoft employees to destroy email after 30 days and not to
| archive their email, suggesting that this deletion policy
| might be an effort to eliminate material that would later be
| damaging in court. This case was settled out of court in March
| 2005, with Microsoft agreeing to pay Burst.com $60 million
| for nonexclusive rights to Burst.com's media player software.
