  • You can publish sample questions if you wrote the questions yourself, or if you have the permission from whoever wrote them. But if you are lifting the questions from another site (let alone the actual exam!) then you could get into lots of trouble for publishing them.

  • Ofcourse there hold copyright for their exams. Also there is disclosure agreement that you have to sign when taking any MS exam. So if you passed that exam, publishing questions can resolve in you getting decetified. 

    And there is another thing. I ask you not to do it even if there was no copyright. Publishing those questions and creating braindumps is giving anyone who passed an exam a bad name. Having questions before exam can help pass people who have no real knowledge and skills and it takes away credit and severity to MS certification and everyone who studied and passed exam. So beside copyright and disclosure agreement, there is moral thing to it.

  • Thank You Mustafa!

    I am against copy-paste kind of certification.  I prefer learning & attaining.. But the MS certification questions are too complex that a realworld expert cannot pass it.  This is where we need dump.

    So coming back to the "copyright" issue.. How come the pass4sure, testking vendors are selling the  questions? 

    These guys should be sued. Right?

    Do MS hold the copyright?
