Luca Bonissi bought a Lenovo laptop which came with a pre-installed Windows license he didn't need. He asked for refund, Lenovo refused.

After a 2-year court case, Lenovo had to pay 20,000 euros in damages for abusive behavior.

@fsfe wait, he bought a product which was advertised(?) including Windows, demanded a refund for a part of the package he bought, didn't get it, took it to the court and won?

@fsfe @meldrian Yes, because the licence is binding on the retailer to do that if you disagree with the terms.

Indeed. Legally a hardware shall be available without any software.
