Its a good point, but a fairly small one.

At the end of the day, most people buying software know what they are getting.

It would seem that she is suing on principle (or just for the hell of it) rather than trying to correct an injustice.

The article doesn't say why she tried to take the software back:

She couldn't use it? Wrong spec for her system?

Didnt like the terms and conditions?
