Busted! What happens when WGA attacks

When Microsoft's Windows Genuine Advantage software kicks in and identifies your copy of Windows as "non genuine," what happens next? On the surface, at least, Microsoft is all tea and sympathy: "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting," says the official message that takes over the Windows start up screen.

But that's a funny way to treat a victim, because everything in the WGA experience is intended to get you to open your wallet and pay for a new product key and Windows CD, even if you already own a perfectly legal license.
