Microsoft is aware of the problem that its software is heavily piracone, and it’s still a big problem. So the Redmond giant came to the conclusion that he would lend a helping hand to users of illegal copies of programs. By offering discounts on legal software.
Users of pirated copies of Office see a new message stating that illegal software is being used. Microsoft mentions there about problems that may be a consequence of this state of affairs. These include exposure to viruses and other malicious code, corrupted files and lost data, or the inability to receive critical updates or editing problems.
By the way, the company offers pirates a discount on the purchase of a legal Microsoft 365 subscription. Not a small one, because it reaches up to even 50 percent original price. So you can save a lot. But will it encourage pirates to switch from illegal software? It’s hard to say.
