Microsoft: Pirates Not Locked Out of Windows
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 11/12/2004 05:45:00 PM.

Despite reports to the contrary, Microsoft has confirmed that it has made no changes to its Windows Genuine Advantage program to lock out users with invalid or pirated keys.

"We need to be very clear, Microsoft has no plans to lock users out of their PCs, nor does it have the technical capacity to do so," David Lazar, Director of Genuine Windows at Microsoft, told BetaNews.

Users running non-genuine copies of Windows are given information on how to obtain a legitimate copy before being allowed to download their requested file. In the program's current implementation, those users still have access to all download content, except for the free offerings available only to those who validate as genuine.

"Microsoft is not preventing any upgrades - we simply inform users of the Download Center who opt-in to the pilot about whether or not they may be running non-genuine Windows," explained Lazar.
