Microsoft intends to examine customers’ licenses

A Microsoft spokesperson has a report of the business magazine contradicted balance sheet, after which the software giant has sent letters to more than 15,000 Somers to control licenses. Auditors controlled in the process, whether the number of purchased Microsoft licenses a company with the used products agree.

Microsoft spokesman Heiko Elmsheuser said: "This figure is simply wrong. We write a fraction of the number of customers bandied about." If it were a low four-digit number from several hundred thousand customers who are in a contractual relationship with Microsoft. These letters were not sent at the same time, but throughout a year.

The associated license feedback from Microsoft customers will be sent to the concluded contracts for years. According to which local authorities would have to pay extra few million euros because Microsoft has changed the license terms.

According to Microsoft must, in principle, only be made good, if "has not been properly licensed" under contracts entered was. However, there was actually a change in the right to receive so-called EDU-licenses, which are mostly spent on educational institutions. There were companies, including public, which are now commercially full or in part. This would then no longer be able to purchase discounted EDU licenses.
