Obviously looking to avoid any backlash with two major media events planned in the coming days, Microsoft released a statement to ensure that its intentions were clear. It also responded to Rep. Markey’s admonition to consider an opt-in standard regarding the collection of data.
To that end, Microsoft also took the step to make the “do not track” option in Internet Explorer the default setting in the browser, even though it was not part of the Services Agreement. Score one for Microsoft.

No score for Microsoft, the "do not track" option in Microsoft browsers will be ignored BECAUSE it is turned on by default, when it was the user who should turn it on for it to be honored by tracking websites
