Submission + - UK retailer sold "94,000 counterfeit copies of Win (pcpro.co.uk)

Barence writes: "Microsoft has accused leading high street retailer Comet of creating and selling more than 94,000 counterfeit copies of Windows recovery discs. The software giant has issued legal proceedings against the Comet Group for selling the alleged counterfeits to customers that bought computers loaded with Windows Vista and Windows XP. The legal action charges Comet with producing the counterfeits in a factory in Hampshire and then selling the media to customers at retail outlets around Britain. Comet has yet to respond to requests for comment on the issue, but the action comes at a critical time for the company, which is up for sale."
