Throwing eggs at Steve Ballmer is legal in Hungary

At least according to this article. The gist of the machine translated text is that Ballmer is a public figure who can be criticized and throwing eggs counts as freedom of expression.

As long as it sticks to throwing aggs, I think a person like Ballmer should not mock up, but be tankful for that.

What Microsoft did in Hungary was not ok and I can understand the outrage.

Microsoft is a company without decent principles. IMHO it cannot expect to be treated otherwise.

The EU should definitely enshrine this as an EU wide law. Maybe as part of the EU treaty.
