Submission + - MS allows pirates to activate unlicensed installations of Windows 8 (networkworld.com)

mvar writes: According to a NW article, users can activate their pirated copy of Windows 8 by simply installing a free Windows 8 Media Center upgrade. This method, as described in a Reddit post allows users to upgrade to a fully licensed and permanently activated Windows 8 version. I guess that's another way to increase the percentage that W8 has in the market.
