    Good day ????

    I must say that this is probably the most strange question I heard for a long time in my opinion. I mean the question "why to buy license". There is one simple answer for this, because stealing is wrong! It's something against the low in most (if not all) countries, and it is unethical behavior. What can be simplest than this?

    You might ask why to use Microsoft product over other solutions, which can a legitimate topic, but how can you ask why someone that use Microsoft product should use it according to the licence the product is given?

    I hope no one is going to write a blog for example about "why we should not murder" or "why we should not steal". Will you open discussion about the advantage & disadvantage of murder?!?

    >> Hello Microsoft team

    Anyhow, MSDN and TechNet forums are community forums. The people that help and take part in the discussions are not necessarily related to Microsoft and most of the Moderators are not Microsoft employees, but simply people from the community who do it on their free time.

    There is no forum related to your question :-)

    * there is forum related to Licensing (not in the English language) and you try contact the Licensing department, but I would not expect to get any response if any (maybe a polite very short sentence).

    If you are in north america you need call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist, and you can get more detail information from them. Worldwide customers can use the Guide to Worldwide Microsoft Licensing Sites to find contact information in their regional locations: http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/worldwide.aspx

    >> what will happen if users use pirated windows products

    They will be doing stealing and like any stealing we should not discuss what will happen in order to make people steal just because the punish is OK with them.

    Let's end this discussion!

    This is not a forum for lawyers and we do not discuss what is the punish for murder or for stealing. This forum is Technical forum to help people learn technical stuff regarding Microsoft technologies.

    The answer is simple. You should use licence for legal and ethical reason.
    If you want to discuss the punish, then you can pay a lawyer for consulting. This will be different from one country to the other probably, but we do not care about this here!

    Please close the thread
