Windows "As we pass the one month anniversary of the general availability of Windows 8, we are pleased to announce that to-date Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses. Tami Reller shared this news with industry and financial analysts, investors and media today at the Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades." Not bad, but there are the usual asterisks, as Ars notes.

For a completely different view on copyright, you should also have a look at other industries:

Anyway it depends on how copyrights are used.

How copyright is used for the Linux kernel or for books is usually fine.

How proprietary software vendors only sell you a license to use their software with lots and lots of exception and a right to retract that permission, I don't like so much.
