Here’s the problem…

several illegal versions of Windows 7 and Office 10

Several…how about China in the Billions of illegal version…I hear nothing about this privacy happening??? Looks like let’s get the small fry and forget about the big sharks that will bite us back if we try anything. Like this is going to stop Illegal Win7 and Office from going and going. This should tell you that your overcharging for your product and that is why this happens.

Somehow, I get the feeling this is a public internet hotspot. Or, perhaps someone decided to partake in EFF’s “Open WiFi” movement, making their personal WiFi available to everyone in range.

Unless you want Microsoft’s over-glorified anti-sharing bots to label you as one who attacks ships (a “pirate”), I would suggest rejecting any Microsoft software. Or at the very least, reject as many products (Microsoft or non-Microsoft) which require online activation as possible
