Resident of Wisconsin stubbornly continues to illegally sell the activation keys for the products of the company.


Selling unlicensed copies of software from Microsoft is still a serious problem for the company. Redmond is the third time since 2000, is suing a resident of Wisconsin, stubbornly continuing to illegally sell the activation keys to Windows and Office, despite the injunction.

Microsoft once again filed a lawsuit against Anthony Boldin (Boldin Anthony), in 2000 and 2006, already convicted of illegal sale of production of the company. Despite the fact that both times the court satisfied the claim of Microsoft, Boldin continues to sell activation keys for software products. Moreover, according to the manufacturer, the pirate still had not paid court-ordered compensation in the amount of $1.2 million, so now Microsoft is seeking the issuance of a temporary restraining order.

According to court records, Boldin illegally received the keys of activation from several sources in China and then resold them on the four sites. Two of them are already closed due to a lawsuit Microsoft, however, remaining still possible to buy illegal goods. In the investigation of the experts of the company bought Boldin a few activation keys. As it turned out, two of them were registered for academic programmes in China, one was intended for internal use in Microsoft, and four were issued for electronics manufacturers that sell products preloaded with Windows and Office.

Restraining order – a form of court order in Anglo-Saxon law, especially in the United States, which the court requires a person to perform certain actions in relation to another person or, conversely, to refrain from committing such action. A person who violates the injunction order, may be subject to civil or criminal liability.
