    My point if Microsoft is going after piracy they should police their store apps better. It kind of like "Do as we say, not as we do" in my opinion. I question some of free anime & free movie apps it just doesn't feel right to me. One major reason is you can't tell if what you are watching is legal or not in your country. From the web browser in most cases you can tell. One of the anime apps opened up a browser and wanted me to install software, which I didn't. I am not using windows 10 right now, I am having some issues with it. Intel decided not to support some graphic drivers for windows 10 & some Newer Linux distos. They maybe be changing their mind at least for windows 10, I see some beta drivers Intel is working on for Windows 10 anniversary update.

    I'm sure that MS is not violating any laws with anything in their store.

    Here is the Crunch --So Long as it's profitable.

    I know I might be near the mark here -- but if "Joe bloggs" say records a film from BBC or wherever and uploads it to a torrent site at ZERO cost where does the site actually make its money from. If you use something like Firefox and disable all scripts you won't get bombarded with ads etc so how do these sites make their money --operating a load of fast servers isn't that cheap and the site operators aren't doing it "out of the goodness of their hearts".

    @fjk61011

    Iceland used to get UK content from Netflix --so hobbled that even official Govt websites were telling how to bypass blocks and get the US Site !!!!!.

    Of course a small country with less population than some Dublin suburbs isn't going to cause Hollywood a whole lot of hassle - but you can understand the principle here.

    Not sure if allowed on the Forum but the party got a huge amount of votes in the election so a legit political organisation and they aren't advocating "Breaking Intellectual copyright " rules or intellectual ownership of content but a reform of the more absurd copyright and intellectual management systems.

    http://www.piratar.is/policies/?lang=en

    Now no problem -- and subscription just the same --so COMPLAIN if services like Netflix aren't operating fairly or you are getting less content.

    Cheers

    I need help understanding some things that have been suggested.

    1. If one has a low income one has the justification to steal a operating system, programs, movies ect.

    2. If one lives in a low income country one has the justification to steal a operating system, program, movies ect.

    Where in the dickens did such ideas come from?

    I think most can make a list of thing they would like to have if they only had the money.
    I know my list would be very long.

    I personally have 3 major choices.

    1. Get more money.
    2. Steal what I can't buy.
    3. Do without.

    Number 1 and 3 is what I do.
    Save for a long time to get enough money but most of the time I'm stuck with option #3.

    I hope Microsoft and other companies hut down the bad guys, convict and execute.

    Just my thoughts

    ..............he'd never actually seen a legit OS..................

    Exaggerated a bit but it is true that counterfeiting is a norm and prevalent in China.

    Windows 10 Pro x64 FCU - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    As the Chinese authorities are not in the least worried about this large scale theft other measures are needed ....

    Add a GPS locator chip into the base hardware requirements for Windows 10 (wont run with out it's presence) - If it comes back that the location is China shut it down - Sorted

    The small amount of C4 wired to the processor, would of course be optional

    Barman58,

    I agree with you point you are making. Aside from the piracy issue, I see GPS locator as a bad idea. GPS doesn't work everywhere. Not everyone wants give out your location that you live/work at. I thought Microsoft already has something to determine your location using an cable or dial-up internet I.P. address for activation of any windows system (Xp,7,8,10, etc..),


    @Layback Bear

    I didn't say poor countries should or poor should steal windows. I said Microsoft had some cheaper prices to buy a legit windows operating system in other countries, which makes me a little mad. My point is you don't need to steal, there is plenty of Free operating system (Linux, BsD,etc) & there are places where you can buy cheap legit pre-installed computer with a windows operating system.
