China nabs largest pirate software distributorMikey 6 comments
Good news for Microsoft on the war on piracy, China has bagged the worlds largest pirate software distributor. Eleven were handed sentences ranging from 1.5 to 6.5 years and are apparently the largest sentences dished out by China for this type of crime.
The pirates had manufactured and sold more than $US2 billion worth of counterfeit Microsoft software, which mainly consisted of Windows Operating systems and Office packages.
With this news in mind, I wonder if it will make any difference to the cost of Microsoft's products?
