Throwing eggs at Steve Ballmer is legal in Hungary

by Volker Weber

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.

He's a strong advocate of throwing things around so shouldn't have a problem with that.

But only during Ballmer season. And with the proper license, available at the office of the minister for freedom of expression in Budapest. Fill out your application on the outside of an egg and....

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.
