I know this is none of my business, still, since Microsoft always tries to bump its competitors, i was wondering what current legal issues are going on between Ubuntu and Microsoft Corp., and is there anyway common ubuzens like me can help in those matters?

I don't know of any legal issues between Ubuntu and Microsoft. Indeed, Microsoft is contributing to the development of several key technologies we use in Ubuntu -- most notably Linux and Samba4. They're not the same bad guy they used to be. There are other companies I would be more afraid of, with Apple being the primary bully.

If we're in the subject... does buying some stuff from Ubuntu Shop helps its development, or these items are just a cool stuff? –  Misery Jan 26 '12 at 12:18
