Spanish police bust MS software piracy ring
14 fall into the Net
Spanish police have arrested 14 people for dealing in pirated Microsoft software, recovering counterfeit goods that could have netted $1.52 million in illicit sales.
More than 3,000 packaged operating systems CDs - complete with forged Win XP Professional authentication certificates - were recovered in a swoop on pirates in San Sebastian this week, Reuters reports.
Spain is second only to Greece in software piracy among European countries, according to Microsoft. ®
