Earlier today, a news story was making the rounds, including at our site, on an update of the Microsoft Service Agreement, which appeared to indicate that Microsoft could disable pirated or counterfeit software used on a machine running Windows 10. However, it has since been pointed out to us that this claim is false; the agreement in question only pertains to services provided to you directly from Microsoft, and does not apply to Windows 10. This means that while the company can block your access to services such as Bing or Xbox Live, it cannot remotely disable a copy of a third-party software installed on your hard drive.
