You have a key word in that sentence: "before".
Does that make it OK? IMO, no it doesn't. Should they've upgraded the law by now? Absolutely. Whether they haven't done it by now because of shady interests, lack of interest, other cause, dunno
I don't really know when the law Microsoft's infringing was created but, as i said in a previous post, the law is the law and you can't break it just because you disagree with it: there will be consequences if you do.
