Windows 7: Judge dismisses Windows anti-piracy software lawsuit.

Judge dismisses Windows anti-piracy software lawsuit.

A federal judge last week dismissed a three-year-old lawsuit that accused Microsoft of duping customers when it fed them company anti-piracy software as a critical security update, court documents show.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Jones dismissed the case last Friday, a day after the plaintiffs and Microsoft agreed to drop the lawsuit.

"We are pleased this resolved successfully," said Kevin Kutz, director of public affairs for Microsoft.

Last month, Jones denied several motions by the plaintiffs, including one that would have given them a third chance to turn the case into a class-action lawsuit. That essentially put an end to the action, and ensured Microsoft would not face millions in potential damages.
