Should Microsoft allow non-genuine Windows users to become validly licensed by installing a free upgrade to Windows 10?


Last week we saw a lot of news around the upcoming release of Windows 10. One of the stories that seemed to really grab everyone's attention was the idea that users of a pirated copy of Windows would be allowed to upgrade to Windows 10 for free and become a legitimately licensed user of Windows.

A few days later Microsoft clarified that stance and indicated pirated copies of Windows would be able to upgrade to Windows 10 however, the licensed state of that machine would remain in a non-genuine status.

What do you think? Should Microsoft just allow these illegally licensed copies of Windows to become legitimate through the free Windows 10 upgrade process?
