Snitch on the Pirate, Get a Real Copy Free

Microsoft recently decided to deal with software piracy in a unique way. They declared that all users with preinstalled versions of Windows XP (the campaign is valid only for this version of the operating system) will receive a genuine version if they can prove their copy is pirated.

In addition, Microsoft threatened to withdrawn the users’ right to update the versions that cannot be authenticated. In other words, you rat out on the provider of the pirated version, let him deal with the copyright protection authorities, and Microsoft rewards you with a genuine Windows version.

Microsoft claims these pirated copies are sold to fool users, which we all know is a joke, anyone buying from the corner of street being aware of the risks.
