Posted on Tuesday, April 18 2006 @ 13:05:53 CEST by

China is taking a new measure against piracy, from now on it won't be possible anymore to sell computers without an operating system in China:
Wang Yefei, deputy director, Beijing Copyright Bureau, said that the Chinese will not be able to buy computers without operating systems and that the new directive will be effective end-2006. Yefei said that the ban is aimed at further protecting intellectual property of software.

Yefei categorically stated that all domestically-made and imported computers will be required to be sold with legitimate software pre-installed, and that this measure will be applicable to machines purchased by government departments as well. Yefei however added that all departments of the Beijing municipal government have been using legitimate software.
