Microsoft: “We’re not pirates, you are”

Everyone loves to hate Microsoft and sometimes the vitriol unleashed on the software giant is not without a degree of justification. Take the issue of software piracy for example.

To be fair, Microsoft loses a snot-load of money every year to the unlawful duplication and use of their products.

Sometimes these people are just regular folks who figure they’ll save themselves a few hundred dollars by using a cracked version of Office, Windows or whatever. Other times however, they are businesses who have made a conscious decision to effectively steal from Microsoft by illegally duplicating and selling their wares. Well it’s probably not much of a surprise to find that Microsoft don’t like it when people steal their intellectual property.
