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.

I think 75 years is silly for copyright yes.

However I don't know what Mickey Mouse has got to do with the law protecting my hard-work when creating a software program.

Creating Software is non-trivial, while I work for a gambling company ... if I worked for myself, I would like to think there are protections in my own country that stop a rival just de-compiling/stealing and redistributing something if I am selling licenses.
