The way I see it, Parago/Symantec has most likely stopped the audit to invalidate Norton rebates. I would like to know if anyone has got their Norton rebates invalidated since 1/31. If not, it is probably just during late Jan that people ran into trouble with their rebates.
But of course, people should wait and see before purchasing more Symantec products.
This is total misinformation. Please don't spread such gut-feeling conclusions when you have no data rely on. We need more data points.
