I'm under no crazy delusions that Microsoft is some innocent angel.

But as a person that does in fact work for a company that runs things for other companies, I can totally see how Machinima could do something like this without Microsoft finding out about it until after the fact.

All known facts point to this being the case, so I'm leaning towards Machinima being at "fault" for what happened. Even though what happened wasn't really all that big a deal in the first place. A few advert regulations may have been skirted, and even THAT is up for question.

People are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.

FTC guidelines state that it is up to the person whose product is being advertised to ensure that proper disclosures are given.

It doesn't matter if Microsoft says "we didn't know" because they have a duty to know.

It is the duty of the promoter to disclose that

Totally true. But at the same time, it takes away from the "malicious intent" ideas that most float around.

As a side note, I honestly don't know why I'm defending Microsoft so much on this issue. I don't even have an X1.

It just seems like people are going WAY overboard with this issue. A few stupid guidelines are skirted by a company that works for a company, and the whole interwebs blows up. I find the reactions to this issue way more crazy and annoying than the issue itself, which is almost not an issue at all.
