To me that makes no sense. Microsoft is an abstraction. It can't do
anything. It can't make decisions. Only the individuals to work for it
or on the board can, though they may do it in Microsoft's name.  If
you want to talk about moral action, obligation etc. you can't divorce
that from the people who do the actions.
