Mike Rowe Keeps Raking It In

Canadian teen makes money from feud with Microsoft: Mike Rowe sold all the correspondence between himself and Microsoft for about $1,000.

Bids for a 25-page letter from Microsoft lawyers, an inch-thick book outlining their case to the World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva and e-mails between Rowe and lawyers had reached as much as 120,000 dollars (90,000 US dollars) during the 10-day online auction, but those were dismissed as bogus.
