For years, Microsoft has moved billions in profits to Puerto Rico to avoid taxes. When the IRS pushed it to pay, Microsoft aggressively fought back in court, lobbied Congress and changed the law
Isn't the point of the story that Microsoft was breaking the law but doing so in a deceptive way so it was harder to catch? Which will also always happen. And when caught, they lobbied/bribed/convinced the elected officials to make it harder to enforce/more of this legal.
So I guess my question is who is the "they" in "Maybe they should change the laws"?
