Microsoft Hunts Down Windows 10 Pirate, Tracks IP Address And Sues Him

The case was filed in a Seattle court last Thursday. Microsoft’s pirate chase campaign involves tracking of IP addresses of people who have activated illegal copies of various Microsoft products like the Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Office 2013, and the recent addition being Windows 10 and Office 2016.

It is interesting to know that the company has been offering their newest Windows 10 OS for free since last July, yet, there has been a rise in the number of pirate installations. The free upgrade offer will end on July 29.
