  • Thank you, but I don't see anything there about the offer?  Someone told me if you report the counterfeit seller and give Microsoft the counterfeit software you could be eligible for a free copy or for a discounted kit or something?  I didn't see anything about that on the website you provided, am I missing it somewhere?

    That’s on the accompanying pages – but may not apply in your area.
    Fill in the counterfeit report.

  • Thank you!  Is there a way to find out if it's eligible in my area before starting the process of filing a report?

    IIRC, it says somewhere on the form or in the other pages on that site. Certainly it’s in effect in the US and the UK.
