Either Microsoft Microsoft Corporation 200,39 -2,52 -1,24% is going really too far with what they can do with your Windows 10 machine or else they were too lazy to modify the EULA and copied this section of the Windows 10 EULA straight from the XBox Live EULA”
Section 7b reads: “We may automatically check your version of the software and download software updates or configuration changes, including those that prevent you from accessing the [Windows] Services, playing counterfeit games, or using unauthorised hardware peripheral devices.”
The forced updates are bad enough (especially when they are causing multiple crashing issues), but now Microsoft wants to scan your PC and tattle on you (or disable the software or Windows) if you have ‘counterfeit games’. This really does sound like they just lazily copied to XBox Live EULA into the Windows 10 EULA, especially the part about ‘unauthorized hardware peripheral devices’.
Gordon Kelly is awaiting a response or clarification from Microsoft about this section of the Windows 10 EULA.
