Australia - MS cracks down on fake software

Fake copies of Microsoft Office, operating systems, memory cards and flash drives, fake designer clothing... anything of that nature. At any given time TM offers thousands of fake itmes which breach their terms & conditions... and often do little about the problem. This is the place to discuss the issue.

Australia - MS cracks down on fake software

Ten Oz sellers busted for selling pirated versions of WinXP, Office 2003 and
Office 2007. However the story has an interesting angle in its claims that
eBay did bugger all about the fake sellers.

"It's not just eBay. We look at all auction sites, and we are looking actively in New Zealand because people can trade across barriers." Microsoft said high-quality counterfeit software was increasingly being sold on internet auction websites.
Google, the answer to so many questions!
