  10. 10. Unsa'y mahitabo aning pamaagi? “Microsoft is helping the Russian government crack down against dissidents under the guise of anti-piracy efforts, according to the New York Times. The wide-ranging attacks target advocacy groups and opposition newspapers, with Microsoft lawyers providing cover for the Russian authorities, the newspaper charges. “The article says that Russian police have raided dozens of advocacy groups and opposition newspapers, claiming that they are looking for pirated Microsoft software, under false pretenses. The police take away computers, whether or not software has been pirated, and have even torn stickers off computers showing that Microsoft software has been legitimately purchased. The groups are then left without the use of computers, and prosecuted. The Times notes: “As the ploy grows common, the authorities are receiving key assistance from an unexpected partner: Microsoft itself. In politically tinged inquiries across Russia, lawyers retained by Microsoft have staunchly backed the police.”
