Microsoft admits piracy is good

[Image: Microsoft logo]Microsoft has backed away from their harsh attraction to fighting "pirates" in court because pirates turn into potential clients. They have admitted that pirates are more likely to eventually purchase software if they are left alone.

Also, another point in the article is retaliation. Once Microsoft sues, they lose customers. Take, for example, the story of a school sued for pirating Windows. After all was said and done, Microsoft got nowhere, and the schools in Russia then switched to Linux. Maybe the Recording industry should follow suit.
