Yes, because IP is pure capitalism.
Under the current system, most creators sign their rights away (which should be non-transferrable in the first place) to "creators" such as BMG Sony, NBCUniversal and NewsCorp. Who, y'know, don't come up with the ideas.
...and? Technology has disrupted the business model. This has gone on since the times of Ebrahem and Isaac. Ethics diesn't even come into it, unless you virulently despise people infringing your works, but it's "an honest mistake" when you infringe on others work.
And by the way, the likelihood that you're infringing approaches 100%.
Re: Re: If Microsoft is at fault; then why not other Mobile manufacterers?
I think it's less that it happens, and more the scale that is the issue here: remember that this isn't even the full version of Windows 8 and bloatware that's taking up that much space on the SSD. You're paying £400 for 16GB of storage out-of-the-box. Aplle offers slightly less than that with their 16GB offering (last, I checked, it was 15.4GB formatted.)
What's really hilarious is that this is priced at a similar point to the 16GB iPad for similar actual disk space out-of-the-box. And it costs nearly twice the price of the Nexus 7 for similar disk size (but not disk space out-of-the-box.)
