Reported on Neowin this afternoon: After an exclusive story here at regarding future Windows Mobile Technologies ...

... Microsoft Bloggers across the world syndicated the news and each received legal threats to take down the material.

Bloggers who follow Microsoft technologies are calling on Robert Scoble as a way of contacting Microsoft and are questioning Microsoft's legal threats.

The posting in question was syndicated by Engadget news shortly after Neowin was forced to pull the post. Smartphone site Modaco also received a similar threat after syndicating the news.

Bloggers are taking a similar approach to that of Nick dePlume, calling on the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) for clarification. Nick is currently fighting against Apple in a lawsuit the company filed against his site Think Secret.

Think Secret posted what Apple termed "trade secrets" on the site. The outcome of this case will effect blogging in a huge way.
