    Microsoft is lucky the judge and jury were idiots. This wasn't a trial as much as it was to make an example.

    So this guy was taken to court and had to do jail time over this bull crap . But Microsoft doesn't do a thing to those Microsoft Technicians who want to clean all viruses off my computer and won't stop calling. I am doing my best to avoid Microsoft products whenever I can. Microsoft is too big it needs to be partitioned.

    So Eric here spent money having a Chinese company duplicate these discs.. and he gave them away for free..? See I have a tough time believing that Eric can afford the lifestyle he lives without at least charging what his initial investment in these discs is. Otherwise he's just giving money away anytime someone orders a "free" disc from him. Also, I feel nothing for the guy. He had been given warnings to cease his operations. And bitch boy here only had to do a 15 mo sentence.. in a white collar prison.. no sympathy for someone who has to do time for a crime they knowingly committed

    Fuck Micro$oft, no wonder they are in the garbage bin of history, the lowest of the low in tech companies, and remember how they started their business: screwing IBM out of the DOS license! They will NEVER learn - to this day, their "Windows Upgrades" consist of removing useful tools, and introducing useless clutter. Get a Mac, or even better: Linux! Ubuntu, LXLE, anything... so much better, and so much easier to install, better compatibility today, everything is better about it, no viruses, no slowdown after a year of use, super stable, super amazing - the complete opposite of Micro$hit Broken Windows

    @Clark Giswold Lol, yeah they've been slipping too, no doubt, but not as hard or for as long as microsoft, I think we can all agree on that. I guess Linux is the only one left.. hopeful the corporate whores don't ever get their claws into it, redhat tried ;p

    Microsoft has taken steps literally to force everyone to upgrade. They don't hate him because he copied the software, its because he is extending the life of computers. And that is bad for business. The problem with getting rid of computers is where do they go? China, India. My goal is to setup a set of laws stating that the internet must be able to support older OS formats. If that requires making sets of websites that support older machines only. That is fine. google, yahoo, Microsoft. They have taken steps to make it harder for older computers to function on the internet.

    This guy is way too smart and has way too much money to not understand that he was doing something illegal. He could have easily purchase windows licenses and avoided going to prison. Anyone else think he knew what would happen and did it on purpose to draw attention to his businesses?

    They might listen when an angry person with a gun shoots up the place, but then again maybe not since FRreporter got shot up and those idiots just continued to censor and demonetize more people since Nassim shot them up. These are multi-million companies that refuse to listen to it's customers and honestly, You are taking a risk when working with these rich scumbags because there are a lot of angry people who use these products!!

    Arrested and labeled a felon and can never get a good job again for burning a iso that comes for free. That's like saying I can't make a tool to fix my car. You must buy all your tools from the store don't cast metal into a rench. F windows and upgrade to Linux it's faster and more secure than windows anyway I switched years ago never looked back and Linux don't care you can legally download, modify the software code and burn all you want for free. My favorite is Linux mint it's kinda windows looking but it's free and better why pay money for windows that's like paying money for a black and white tv while color TV's are free. Ps when I buy a computer I take out the drive to keep windows just in case I get hardware that only works with windows and replace the drive with something faster and add as much ram as possible and install Linux. my 10 year old computer runs faster than a new computer running windows and the battery last for days in standby because Linux is much lighter than windows and the CPU idle is like at 1% not like windows 30% idle and the ram is the same windows needs like 6 gb of ram keeping half if it full at all times Linux only needs like 1gb and there's still free ram to run software with

    lol. he admits he broke the law by putting trademarks on a disc he is selling. make no mistake, Eric is in this business to make money, just like Dell or Microsoft is. He's certainly trying his damndest to make this about ewaste but his guilt has nothing to do with that. His points about ewaste are all very valid nad we need to change how we do things no doubt though. and who in the hell wears a fedora while brushing their teeth?

    Those 11000 letters should have went to the judge. Using Microsoft logo is not an infringement when they give the product away for free with the computer.. Anyways that being the case he did not infringe their copyright by giving the software away he gave changed her logo copyright. Which is a completely different animal. I would like to see how much "campaign contributions and" that Microsoft gave to that judge
