They want them to stop legitmizing illegal users' efforts by "encouraging" them to only deal with other legitimate businesses. I actually foresee, in the long run, alot less outsourcing and alot less importing. More businesses will turn to American companies willing to play ball, helping put those foreign competitors out of business.

Well put statement if only it were actually true and not just intellectually and judicially so. In reality the government going after illegals is just a farce. This will be the same I predict. Like everything it has the best of intentions but good intentions pave the road to hell.

Ding ding ding. We have a winner. This is the result.

Easy Fix.... Use Linux.

When will these people finally realize that they are helping the open-source by
"fighting piracy"

Linux is just getting better and better. Ubuntu is so easy to learn that its ridiculous.

Sony
Microsoft
Apple

Just keep digging your own graves. All it will take is some Hipster to say its cool on TV, and the general public is going to be like "what, there's a FREE alternative to every thing software?"


TO ANYONE WHO DOESN'T KNOW

LINUX IS FREE AND REALLY GOOD!!!

I personally could see it as a good thing not only for Microsoft, but rather that it could force the legitimate American businesses to be able to get some more business again (not saying all overseas companies aren’t- legitimate.)
50 million is a lot for a company to make? Really?

The American companies have 18 months (that's 1 year and a half) to change suppliers/manufacturers. They would only get sued if they're stupid.


How can they know if the manufacturer uses genuine software? Easy, Microsoft provides them with a Certificate of Authenticity of Real Really Genuine non-Pirated Software of Awesomeness that proves said manufacturer is OK.
This, but x 1000. The last thing this country has to export is technology. Let the bastards pay for it the way they make us pay for all the crap they make in their sweatshops.
