Microsoft Tries To Rope In Unlicensed XP

Filling a gap in its strategy to make sure its business customers are paying for each installed copy of Windows XP, Microsoft yesterday announced the Get Genuine Windows Agreement (GGWA).

GGWA is aimed at increasing Windows XP licensing compliance among businesses. Microsoft apparently believes that some customers misunderstood their agreements, and were installing full copies of Windows XP on corporate computers, which is illegal, rather than upgrading the OS, which the license allows.
