Microsoft said Tuesday that it filed 26 lawsuits against companies that were allegedly selling pirated copies of Microsoft Windows XP. This is part of a crack down on people profiting from piracy.
Could WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) be a contributing factor to this round-up? In my opinion, it is plausible that it had an impact. This also shows what really is hurting Microsoft is not the kid in his parents basement downloading the latest Windows version from a torrent, rather it is companies actually profiting from the sale of illegal software.
