Microsoft Changes Its Windows 8 Activation Policy To Curb Expected Piracy Issues
Aug 07, 2012 11:52
Microsoft is making their latest version of Windows more secure. It's primary goal is to cut down on any piracy that may or may not happen. OEMs in the past who were shipping PCs with the most recent version of Windows would often share the same activation key, and this made life easy for pirates and rogue OEMs. Now, Microsoft is demanding a little more and will be requiring OEMs to write a unique activation key into the BIOS of each machine. It will ship them with the operating system pre-installed.
OEMs are also going to have to get all keys directly from Microsoft, no ifs ands or buts. The new policy should tighten up a few loopholes that pirates have been exploiting for now. [Maximum PC]
