Power to the people - WGA helps shut down the biggest software counterfeiting outfit in history
"Earlier today the Chinese government and the FBI announced the largest bust of counterfeit software manufacturing or distribution ever. The bust by the Chinese Public Security Bureau (PSB) in cooperation with the FBI and help from Microsoft and others was of a syndicate, headquartered in China's Southern Guangdong province that is estimated to have sold more than $2 billion in counterfeit Microsoft software in 27 countries.
More than 1,000 Microsoft customers in 12 different countries who had counterfeits from this particular source used WGA to learn their software was counterfeit, submitted the counterfeits to Microsoft, and forensic and intelligence specialists then traced the counterfeits back to the criminal syndicate in China."
