Russian Censorship Under Microsoft Piracy Ruse

Apparently there are still problems in Russia with censorship. There have been false accusations of piracy within the country that result in advocate groups or groups with unfavorable purposes being raided for their computers. The raids occur due to claims that the groups are using pirated Microsoft software. Once the groups' computers are taken they essentially can no longer function. Microsoft has already spoken saying they have no reason to suspect these groups are pirating software and that using piracy as a front to silence advocacy is detestable. It is sad to this type of censorship occurring in Russia.
