Sting! The biggest software counterfeiting bust in history

From Windows Vista Team Blog

Damn! The counterfeiters are improving their techniques more and more. Hmm, I wonder which one is fake?

Quote:

"Earlier today the Chinese Public Security Bureau and the FBI announced the largest bust of counterfeit software manufacturing or distribution ever.  The bust took place in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong and includes arrests that took place over the last couple of weeks.  While the value of the software actually seized is estimated at about five hundred million dollars, we’re estimating that the value of software produced and distributed over the last few years by this particular group is closer to two billion dollars."

As for the counterfeit Vista disk, its the one on the right. You can notice subtle differences such as washed out look of the copper hologram and the inner hub labeling is not centered properly. Its still a bit difficult to tell, especially for the average consumer, but with Windows Genuine Advantage and more education and awareness its really doing a great job.
