Piracy student must pay Microsoft $24,000

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.

Piracy student must pay Microsoft $24,000
NZ Herald - 18 May 2010
An Auckland student has incurred the wrath of computer giant Microsoft
after selling unlicensed versions of its products through online auctioneers
Trade Me.

Shaahil Ali of Papatoetoe was ordered by the Manukau District Court to
pay the US-based multinational $22,176 after he admitted copying its
programs, then selling them on.

He was also ordered to pay Microsoft $2130 in costs, and will have to hand
over all his computers and any digital storage devices if asked to by the
company.

Ali sold 21 counterfeit Microsoft Office 07 licences between last August and
October, netting $6400 from the sales.
