BUSTED DOT COM: A federal judge has ordered two South Texas men to turn over 11 Internet domain names to Microsoft Corp. Among the Internet domain names registered by the men: microsoftwindows.com and microsoftoffice.com.``The main lesson to be learned is that the trade names that are important to Microsoft and others have been recognized as valuable and cannot be taken and misappropriated by others,'' said Ronald Secrest, Microsoft's Houston attorney.Said the lawyer for one of the cyber-squatters: ``We were just glad to conclude the problem and get on with our lives. It's not a lot of fun fighting Microsoft, as the U.S. government will tell you.''
