@Dashrender said in Firmware update for HP printers bans third-party ink: Again, getting less than 20 people quickly to make a vote is one thing, getting 1000's is another. Perhaps the number of companies that have 1000's that matter (i.e. it takes thousands of shareholders to make up a majority, it can't be done with less) is so small that it's not relevant to the conversation? That's likely only a handful of companies. If any, it's only a theory that any like that exist. Normally there are either super large individual investors or funds that hold the majority of shares in just four or five representatives. They normally talk directly. But if there was even need for an exception to this, investors can do whatever they want. They can have email voting and require responses in five minutes if they want.
