Background:

Unlicensed and Mislicensed Opportunity

1Fourth Annual Global Software Piracy Study, May 2007, 2006 Worldwide Software Piracy Figures, Business Software Alliance

2Impact of Unlicensed Software on Mid-Market Companies, Harrison Group, April 2008

Economic Impact

  • Pirated software continues to be among the largest revenue competitors facing the industry, with an estimated opportunity cost of more than $40B annually1.

  • Piracy impacts legitimate businesses such as channel partners that have to compete with those selling counterfeit and unlicensed software

  • Research shows fully licensed businesses grow faster and are more profitable than those using a mix of genuine and unlicensed software.2 Successful companies make valuable long-term customers.

    Market Opportunity

  • PCs with unlicensed Windows software continues to be an enormous revenue opportunity for Microsoft partners.

  • The base of customers with existing PCs in need of Windows compliance due to counterfeit or unlicensed scenarios is growing.

  • Customers want a solution that will allow them to easily bring multiple PCs into compliance, and to acquire a solution in a way that is familiar to them using their established channel provider.

Purchasing Requirements and Installation

Fulfillment

  • For each order placed, the customer receives an electronic order confirmation (as long as the customer provided an email address).

  • The partner will also receive a copy of the electronic order confirmation.

  • Customers should also retain a copy of their agreement plus proof of payment to the partner.

  • Media may be purchased separately through a Reseller.

    Installation Scenarios

  • If the customer is running non-genuine software (i.e., counterfeit), they need to install the genuine copy. To activate the software the customer can obtain a VLK by contacting the Product Activation Center. For further information about VLKs and a list of Product Activation Centers, go to ‘Volume License Product Key’ section of https://www.microsoft.com/licensing.

  • No installation or activation is required if customer already has genuine software. This scenario typically applies when there is a mislicensing situation (e.g., customer used a Volume Licensing agreement to install Windows on a new PC without an underlying operating system).

    Note: There is no COA distributed as part of GGWA.
