Pirates, beware of that free Windows 10 upgrade!

Microsoft earlier this week revealed that it plans to offer Windows pirates a free upgrade to Windows 10, even if they do not own a genuine copy of a Windows version eligible to receive the update free of charge. Initially, it wasn't clear whether the policy applies to anyone currently stealing Windows, or only to Chinese pirates. 'Ars Technica' has learned more details on the matter, revealing that the free update isn't necessarily the good news pirates may have been expecting.
Once the Windows 10 upgrade is installed over a non-genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8.x version, that computer will keep being considered non-genuine by Microsoft.
