Computer giant Microsoft has taken on the little Internet address mikerowesoft.com. The 17-year-old behind the domain name, Mike Rowe, lives in Vancouver, next to Microsoft's hometown of Seattle. Microsoft's lawyers say the Web site address amounts to copyright infringement and are offering him $10 to give it up. Rowe is holding out for $1,000.
