Pirate? Microsoft Will Break Your Head In!

    May 17, 2006

According the The Enquirer, Microsoft sent some resellers a nice little package to fight software piracy.

It says, “Lets beat the cheats; We’ll track down every illegal software supplier we can in {your town}”. Inside: A rock. Yeah, an honest to god rock. Jeez.

Underneath the rock, it says, “Let’s leave them no place to hide”.

So, is Microsoft trying to scare the retailers? Or enlist their help? Is the rock a threat, or a weapon? Not as bad as the dinosaurs, but this is one confusing campaign. And a little too violent in implication, you ask me.
