Even resellers are at risk

We talk all the time on here about individual companies being targeted by software vendors for piracy and non-compliance with licensing policies. It doesn’t stop there. Recently, Microsoft got settlements from 11 resellers in the UK for selling illegal software and not installing the software properly. Each of the 11 firms have reached settlements with Microsoft and will now work with the company to insure legal practices are being carried out. Ouch.

According to an article from ChannelWeb UK, these new 11 cases bring Microsoft to a total of 103 settlements with resellers just since 2008. The launch of Windows 7, which is only a few months away now, will likely cause an uptake in the fight against piracy over the next 6-12 months. Get your licensing in order – they aren’t playing around!
