MS accuse Comet of piracy


Microsoft are taking proceedings against Comet for bundling pirated copies of windows with PC's...
That's not really what the engadget report says - it states that Comet sold PC's (with a legit copy of Windows) but supplied 'unofficial' recovery discs to their customers.
So the PC's license for Windows was fine and therefore I can't see what MS have an issue with as you would need to use an official license key to restore the PC from the 'supplied' recovery discs - in exactly the same way if you had created the discs yourself, which AFAIK MS have no problem with users doing.
