Microsoft pirating software...

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I saw this over at <a href=""; target="_blank"></a>: apparently M$ was pirating software in Softimage3d for a while, and a french court found them guilty and fined then 3million francs. M$ sold the software to Avid. The funny part is that M$ have been leading an anti-piracy movement recently...

    That's brilliant! That should make Headlines everywhere! Piracy is really easier than most people think. Tracking licenses is not easy for companies that have grown quickly or merged a few times.

    Unfortunately that is a slap on the wrist to Microsoft. 3 million Francs is roughly a little over $400,000 US. It could become a PR nightmare for MS, but considering there has been no real pres coverage for this (they were convicted of this last September!).

    Oh well...
