    Yet another reason why subscription based software sucks.

    I find this interesting and I'm not sure how I feel about it, as though it were up to me. :D

    On the one hand, it is wrong to take money for a service, declare sanctions, and then cut them off with no refund. On the other hand, giving a refund kinda goes against the idea of the sanctions in the first place. It would make more sense to me to let them continue to use the product that was already paid for and refuse to let them renew. This would stop more money from changing hands, which maybe I am misunderstanding is the point of sanctions.

    In any case some kind of precedent needs to be set as moving forward this will be an issue for other countries and other tech companies selling any service by subscription, which is the model they are forcing us all onto. :isay:
