Microsoft is targeting two local computer resellers in a piracy case, two of among 26 lawsuits the software giant filed last week. Microsoft said that it has filed lawsuits against Grand Junction-based Computer Plus USA, for allegedly distributing infringing Windows XP Professional and Office Professional 2003, and Denver-based Microcomp Solution, for distributing counterfeit Office Professional 2003 software, despite a prior settlement with Microsoft. The lawsuits are part of a campaign to go after companies Microsoft alleges software or participated in hard-disk loading (installing unlicensed software on computers they sold). Other lawsuits were filed in Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and South Carolina.
