Yes, it does - if you purchased this machine with Windows pre-installed, you were sold a counterfeit installation of Windows.
If you purchased the copy of Windows, it is counterfeit, and you should attempt to claim a refund
If you paid someone to install Windows, then youshould claim a refund

In all cases you should inform MS of the piracy.
