Neowin.net downed by MS 'cease and desist' letter
Friday, 7 March 2003

Well-known Windows enthusiast site Neowin.net has been downed, reportedly by a "cease and desist" letter sent by Microsoft to the site's hosting company. The Register understands that the letter relates to an item published by Neowin concerning a Microsoft peer-to-peer SDK. "In simple terms," a Neowin source told The Register, "Microsoft scared our server host."
