Summary
  • Microsoft Canada Inc's attempts to reduce software piracy include its requests to inspect microcomputer facilities in Quebec schools, and its new classroom licensing agreements. Microsoft officials said the spot check policy is a confirmation that the company does not condone illegal copying of software. Microsoft's licensing agreement allows the educational institution to purchase the first copy of software at close to retail price, and subsequent software disks and manuals can be purchased separately at ten percent of the full purchase price. Microsoft stated the licensing agreement is a practical compromise, as the company cannot not prevent illegal copying of software and manuals. Two universities said they have strict internal controls to prevent illegal software copying, and that they had not received any communication from Microsoft.
