This is original.

So Bill Gates has paid Mick and the boys 12 million dollars to use "Start It 
Up" to sell Windows 95.

For those who don't know the song, it's the one that goes "You make a grown 
man cry...".

Food for thought.

Subject: windows 95 add

Today I heard that microsoft is paying the Stones $12 million for the
rights to use "You can start me up" in their advertisements.

Excuse me for being a foreigner, but I was not aware of the fact that US
truth-in-advertisement laws require you to exhaustively describe the
complete feature set of a product in your add.

               Windows '95 ships August 24th 1995
                     Resistance is futile.
                   You will be assimilated.

Commenting on the licensing of the Rolling Stones' song _Start Me Up_
by Microsoft as part of the ad campaign for Windows95, music licensing
expert Al Kohn said to the Wall Street Journal (8/18/95):

"You can't always get what you want,  but if you're Microsoft you
get what you need."
