No More SLP?

Microsoft has pulled the rug out from underneath their Software Licensing and Protection (SLP) Services Product.

In the new age of bloggers and social media, how they thought they would keep this a secret is beyond me! A ZDNet reader sent in a tip after clicking on the link to purchase the product from Microsoft and got the following message:

“We appreciate your interest in SLP Services, however we are currently not taking any new orders at this time. Current customers will continue to have access to the service and support for the SLP Services product through our SLPSInfo@microsoft.com email alias and our MSDN site.”

According to Microsoft, the product doesn’t currently fit with their business strategy and they are evaluating where it does/will fit, and if it will stay.  I wonder how long current customers will have access. If I were one, I wouldn’t hold my breath.
