It doesn't say where

he was selling it, but if it was on ebay, they have a Microsoft tech on staff that oversees every seller of their software to make sure they have the proper licenses to do so, including copying the disks and having the correct COA to go with it.

If the story is factual and he is, in fact, guilty of piracy, he deserves whatever gets handed down by the courts.

I saw something in the other link.

From that article links to http://www.tgdaily.com/business-and-law-brief/57519-republican-tea-party-leader-arrested-for-computer-piracy?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+tgdaily_all_sections+%28TG+Daily+-+All+News%29

"His software piracy scheme came to an end after one of his customers purchased four copies of Rosetta Stone software, and then tried to resell the software himself. The person he sold it to found out it was an illegal copy.

So when he tried to go back to Trinca for a refund, Trinca refused. That's when the police got involved."

No honor among thieves! Happy

who've lost all fingers except for the middle ones. Happy Well, the mention of the Grand Strand means its around Myrtle Beach so maybe they've retired there and need to make a living anyway they can. The article does say they've been accused but not convicted so we need to wait and hear the rest of the story. As for the Tea Party, about all I know is they're tired paying high taxes. There's another group whose agenda is somewhat the opposite. They do want higher taxes but just don't want them levied on themselves. Wink

Anyone notice the spelling and grammar errors on their site?

I'm guessing that whoever this "tea party leader" is, he's just some down home boy trying to make some noise.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
