The Marketplace Report: Microsoft Fights OS Piracy

NPR's Madeleine Brand talks to Bob Moon of Marketplace about a decision by Microsoft to require customers to verify they have a valid copy of an operating system before allowing them to download updates from its Web site. Officials for the software giant say the move will boost Internet security -- and it may prompt those using illegal copies of its popular Windows software to buy legitimate copies.
