Microsoft softwares are one of the most pirated softwares to hit the market, and there is no doubt that they price factor plays a huge role in that.
To tackle the piracy issue Microsoft has been lowering the prices of their software in various countries, however one country at-least is getting the better end of the deal.
If you are in China you can buy a copy of Microsoft Office for only $29, now that is a deal not many would want to miss and also almost close to being free.
This price is to tackle the more than 95% pirated copies of Office used throughout China, and yes the pricing strategy does work. Microsoft has been able to increase sales by 800% since they lowered the price last September.
So if piracy winning the war, or are all Microsoft products just overpriced? What are your thoughts about this, do let us know.
