American software company Microsoft has won a first of its kind case in Spain. In Spain, a Spanish court has ruled that a woman must spend 6 months in prison for using a fake copy of Windows at an establishment she apparently worked at.

Spanish authorities previously paused the case earlier this year amid the Coronavirus and several appeals by the woman. Spain’s high court also ruled that the unidentified woman must also pay a $4,400 fine and pay the remaining licensing fees to Microsoft.

It is the first known time that Microsoft has knowingly pursued intellectual property cases against people believed to be using the wrong version of Windows. It is unclear exactly how Microsoft came to know that such was actually the case.
