Microsoft Celebrates Anti-Piracy Day

Not sure if you knew that today was a special day. Yeah, you probably know that yesterday was National Osteoporosis Day and that tomorrow is International Stuttering Awareness Day, but that leaves Oct. 21 all to Microsoft -- which has now given us Global Anti-Piracy Day. Microsoft is trying to educate users in 49 countries about the evils of pirated software.

I don't agree with committing software piracy, but I find that sometimes the cure is worse than the illness. How many times have you tried to rebuild a system only to be stymied reinstalling software you already paid for?

What do you think about piracy and piracy protection? Shrieks, howls and common sense all welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
