Web site bolsters software theft promotion

Alison Laferla reports

Microsoft has set up a web page aimed at preventing illegal use of software. It contains information on copyright law, consumer rights and the definition of legal software. "Microsoft's new site ensures that anyone who wants to understand licensing issues can go to a single place to get questions answered," said Sharon Baylay, the site's marketing manager. The site can be found at www.microsoft.com/uk.
