A Southern California man who built a sizable business out of
recycling electronic waste is headed to federal prison for 15 months
after a federal appeals court in Miami rejected his claim that the
"restore discs" he made to extend computers' lives had no financial
value, instead ruling that he had infringed on Microsoft Corp. to the
tune of $700,000.
"I am going to prison, and I've accepted it," Lundgren said Monday.
"What I'm not OK with is people not understanding why I'm going to
prison. Hopefully my story can shine some light on the e-waste
epidemic we have in the United States, how wasteful we are. At what
point do people stand up and say something? I didn't say something, I
just did it."
