The company is hoping I'll pass on this information about anti-piracy to customers
and partners so we can all do our part in protecting Microsoft's revenue stream.
But in reading the description, I was left with a nagging doubt. I'm not an
anti-piracy technology guru, so the need for WGA to regularly check the software
after it was initially confirmed as legit is puzzling.
As a user, I must prove in the first month of using Vista that I paid for the
copy. Thereafter, Microsoft pings my computer to make sure my copy is still
legit -- as if I've stopped payment on the check, or something.
Is there a technical reason that my underdeveloped brain can't fathom? Let
me know at [email protected].
