[The work is in the museum]
To meet this challenge in a graceful and delicate way and have fun, we decided to hold a literary contest on Microsoft website.
Software users are advised to follow the example of Russian literary classics who never cribbed lines from their peers
Contest participants are suggested writing a composition about the software they have fairly bought, and answer a few questions in passing. The authors of the best compositions will get mp3 players with a hundred legal music pieces thrown in as a reward.
In creating their literary masterpieces, filling in the questionnaire and answering questions, website visitors will find further proofs that using licensed software is totally in their best interest and learn what Russian classics had to say about it.
