Microsoft shifted the focus of its anti-piracy technology from
Windows-only this week and began piloting a program that sniffs out
counterfeit copies of Office, the application suite that is, after
Windows client software, the company's second-biggest money maker.
Dubbed Office Genuine Advantage (OGA), the pilot will be pointed at
users running versions localized in Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Greek,
Korean, Simplified Chinese, Russian, and Spanish, said Microsoft Monday
when it announced OGA as it also expanded the already-existing Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) anti-piracy program.
