Windows Uses Pirated Software?

Has it ever crossed your mind to use the editor to open a WAV file installed with Windows XP? Nobody will do that - that's what Microsoft probably thought. After all, countless WAV files are stored on a computer, and they are to be heard, not to be watched, right? All audio files of the Windows XP tour have been recorded by a cracked version of the sample editor Sound Forge.

Open the folder "Windows\Help\Tours\WindowsMediaPlayer\Audio\W av". Load one of the nine wav files into the Windows Text Editor and you'll find this text note in the end of the file:

Quote:
LISTB INFOICRD 2000-04-06 IENG Deepz0ne ISFT Sound Forge 4.5
Deepz0ne is a famous cracker from the Radium cracking group that used to crack audio applications between 1997-2002. Along with a person using the alias "Sandor," he was also co-founder of the group (see in this interview). In addition, it was DeepzOne who started circulating the cracked 4.5 version of Sound Forge a few years ago.

It's difficult to say whether Microsoft itself did that or one of the freelancers. Only the Redmond-based employees in charge of the Windows Media Player will know that for sure. It seems, though, as if someone wanted to get around filling out an investment order to buy a software worth $400. The topic still raises a moral problem, though, as Microsoft is quick to report every oh-so-minor success in the fight against piracy. In the wake of that move, the company also joined the BSA (Business Software Alliance), which has devoted itself to the "fight against software piracy" and persecutes violaters around the globe. But maybe BSA knows which office door it should knock on.

Microsoft said that they were using the "Deepz0ne" signature as wildcard while producing the audio files, but they just forgot to delete it in the end. Who can believe that? I dont want to name all the stolen software (beginning with MS-DOS that was originally a software of IBM) that is assembled in Windows OS today and is now made trademark of Microsoft. These pirated audio files are only a tiny example of Microsoft's piracy. No wonder Microsoft is engaged to "protect" all these stolen software by BSA technology in order to camouflage the real authors.
