Alibaba, Microsoft agree to crack down on Counterfeit Software

It’s actually unbelievable how far some people go to trick people in order to make money. If making counterfeit products in the fashion and electronics industry was difficult, imagine the software industry.

The truth is that you can even buy pirated software for a much cheaper price nowadays. As I’ve said before, I love a bargain but I’m very cautious about buying things like this because of the dangers associated. If you have a brand new computer or a laptop and unknowingly install pirated software then in most of the cases, you should be fine. But, there is a small chance that your plan might backfire. What if something happens to your brand new laptop? You certainly won’t be able to return it.

Counterfeit software has become quite popular lately.

All of this has spread to massive companies like Alibaba who have finally decided to team up with software giants Microsoft to crack down on pirated software. Generally, most people will easily be able to bypass even the tightest controls but at least something is being done now.
Not only will both of these companies adopt strict anti-counterfeit measures, they also aim to tell us how to avoid such fraud. Identifying pirated software can be quite a challenge so it will be interesting to see what kind of tips they have to offer us.
