When WGA Attacks

Infoworld's Ed Bott documents the ugly sequence of events when "Windows Genuine Advantage" decides that you're running pirate Windows.

Real pirates are not going to be intimidated by the guilty-until-proven-innocent bent. But Aunt Tillie sure will be, even if she has a valid copy of Windows on which WGA has suddenly gone postal.

But of course that will never happen. Copy protection and DRM schemes never have bugs. Nothing can possibly go wrong...go wrong...go wrong...
