4 Background: Unlicensed and Mislicensed Opportunity
Economic Impact Pirated software continues to be among the largest revenue competitors facing the industry, with an estimated opportunity cost of more than $40B annually1. Piracy impacts legitimate businesses such as channel partners that have to compete with those selling counterfeit and unlicensed software Research shows fully licensed businesses grow faster and are more profitable than those using a mix of genuine and unlicensed software.2 Successful companies make valuable long-term customers. Market Opportunity PCs with unlicensed Windows software continues to be an enormous revenue opportunity for Microsoft partners. The base of customers with existing PCs that need to become Windows compliant due to counterfeit or unlicensed scenarios is growing. Customers want a solution that will allow them to easily bring multiple PCs into compliance, and to acquire a solution in a way that is familiar to them using their established channel provider. 1Fourth Annual Global Software Piracy Study, May 2007, 2006 Worldwide Software Piracy Figures, Business Software Alliance 2 Impact of Unlicensed Software on Mid-Market Companies, Harrison Group, April 2008 4

5 Improper Licensing Types & Scenarios
These scenarios are all too common and result in improperly licensed Windows software on customers’ PCs. Types Scenarios Counterfeit software Installed Windows software using leaked or stolen Volume License Keys (VLK). Downloaded software online or from unknown or counterfeit sources. Attempted to save costs by doing in-place motherboard upgrades without acquiring new Windows licenses on those PCs. PC was purchased from an OEM that used a single license on multiple PCs (called hard disk loading). Mislicensed operating system Purchased PCs without an operating system (OS) pre-installed and then used a Volume Licensing (VL) agreement to install the full Windows desktop operating system. Misversioning Purchased PCs with a consumer version of a Microsoft Windows operating system, such as Home or Starter editions, and then used a commercial VL agreement to upgrade PCs to Windows Professional, Business or Ultimate.
