Best Buy ‘Geek Squad’ Accused of Pirating Software
Well as a ‘geek’ myself, who may or may not have have pirated software … a true ‘geek’ would never get caught let alone get sued. That is all I have to say about that. That is why there is “Not For Resale” versions of software!!
Texas software company Winternals Software LP has sued Best Buy Co. Inc. in federal court, alleging that the nation’s largest consumer electronics retailer was using unlicensed versions of its diagnostic equipment. Best Buy’s Geek Squad, is alleged to be using pirated versions of the software since talks on a commercial licensing agreement broke off. A restraining order has been granted.
