針對微軟最近的道歉聲明,目前我們正在研究任何可能性,包括選擇從法律層面來回應這一次的嚴重事件。基本上,我們認為微軟僅止於承認責任,但並沒有負起責任。

Plurk
是一家非常年輕的新創公司,成立不過2年。我們以科技為本,更是一家非常、非常小的公司。我們沒有行銷部門,我們沒有業務部門。甚至連我,作為Plurk共同創辦人,都不得不親自下來寫這篇新聞稿。

我們花很多的時間來改進產品,希望讓它更完美。我們不斷地投入人力,投入我們手上僅有的資源,為Plurk的用戶提供一個獨特而且豐富的社交網路。我們從無到有,寫自己的程式,而且適當地回饋社群。所以我們希望能有公平的遊戲規則,正如其他許許多多的青年創業家,能夠有朝一日能夠滿足社群的需求,以及看著我們的小公司可以成長。

 


從產品獨特性與用戶介面來看,透過刻意地研究並深入挖掘我們的程式碼等手法,無疑是打算複製我們的使用者體驗、功能與結果,微軟發表了這個產品,甚至投入數以百萬計的行銷預算來推廣。這次的事件絕對不僅僅是一個抄襲的簡單問題而已!

英文原文:


We are currently looking at all possibilities on how to move forward in response to Microsoft's recent apology statement. We are still thinking of pursuing the full extent of our legal options available due the seriousness of the situation. Basically, Microsoft accepts responsibility but they dont offer accountability.  


Plurk is a very young startup with a founding history of about 2 years. We are a very, very small and tech-centric company. We don't have a marketing department, we don't have a sales department. Even I, as a co-founder of Plurk, have to write this press release myself.

We spend most of our time producing and perfecting our own product. Countless iterations, human efforts and almost all capital resources are spent to provide a unique and rich social networking environment for our users. We write our own codes and give back to the community when it is appropriate. We play the fair game hoping that, like many young entrepreneurs out there, to be able to someday help solves other people problem and grow our little company.
 
This event wasn't just a simple matter of merely lifting code; Due to the nature of the uniqueness of our product and user interface, it took a good amount of deliberate studying and digging through our codes with the full intention of replicating our product user experience, functionalities and end results. This product is later launched and heavily promoted by Microsoft with its multi-millions marketing budget. 
 
Sincerely,

Alvin Woon and on behalf of Amir, Ryan, Kan, Janet, Gleb
