Microsoft Files 10 Lawsuits to Help Protect Its Partners, Consumers

Does that price look too good to be true? Someone trying to sell Action Pack or telling you that it’s ok for you to use it for your business even if you’re not a Microsoft Partner? You may want to hold on to your wallet the next time the price of a software title seems too good to be true. It could be an illegal sale.

In another step to try to protect our customers and Partners from these types of practices, Microsoft filed 10 new lawsuits against companies for allegedly pirating software and against people for allegedly selling not-for-resale software to unsuspecting purchasers. You can read the full press release HERE.

If you see someone trying to sell counterfeit, illegal, or mis-licensed (like selling Action Packs to non-qualified organizations) software, please let us know so we can continue to help address these issues on your behalf:

1) Phone: 800-RU-LEGIT
2) Email:
3) Online:

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
