Microsoft Continues to Level the Playing Field for Honest Partners

Almost all of the cases that Microsoft has recently filed resulted from either customer or channel piracy reports. The most recent round of cases were filed against 15 companies and individuals. View the latest cases.

Microsoft Takes Aim at Piracy and Outlines Windows 7 Anti-Piracy Experience

REDMOND, Wash. — May 7, 2009 —
Software piracy is a pervasive problem that costs the world economy more than US$45 billion each year.  But for victims of software piracy, the losses aren’t just monetary. Consumers face potential identity theft, system failures and unrecoverable data loss and market research firm IDC pegs the cost of compromised data in business environments at tens of thousands of dollars per incident.

Microsoft has focused its anti-piracy efforts on protecting customers and partners from the evolving risks of counterfeit software and increasingly sophisticated piracy scams. Every day, more than one million users activate and validate their PCs to make sure they’re running genuine Windows software, and Microsoft has made significant investments in customer education and engineering efforts to make this process simple, easy and reliable. For customers who do discover they are piracy victims, Microsoft has made a range of options available to them, including buying online or through retail, often at special pricing or even at no cost.

Why You Should Buy Refurbished Computers

If you're afraid of buying used technology, when it comes to a factory refurb, there isn't much to fear. Here's what you need to know.

We've all had the experience of buying something expensive, getting it home, taking it out of the box, and finding that something just isn't right. Maybe it's scratched or dented. Maybe it lacks a feature you desperately wanted. Maybe the product in question just doesn't work properly. And in all of these cases, the natural thing to do is return it.

So what happens to it then?

When it comes to technology products like desktop and laptop PCs—even printers, phones, and more—unless they are beyond repair, the chances are that what you send back will ultimately end up going back on the shelves. And, it's likely you'll see it at a much better price.


...Fear, Uncertainty, or Doubt???
