I wonder will anyone ever take these companies to court for discriminating
against the poor. It seems like a reasonable case to me. Here we have 10000
plaintiffs taking these 400 companies to court for discrimination against
their ability to afford licensing costs for software. 

If you are poor you cannot access this site which is what companies want but
it is also quite an awful thing to inadvertently tell someone.
