Short Take: Microsoft takes resellers to court

Microsoft filed lawsuits against two Vancouver, British Columbia-area companies February 27 for copyright infringement, unlicensed software installation, and distribution of infringing products. The resellers, Anovation Computer and United Computers, were charged with loading copies of pirated Microsoft software onto computers that then were sold. Microsoft began the investigation that led to the suit early last year, when it sent "cease and desist" letters to 13 Ontario-based companies.
