windows guilt accuser

from here

sometimes the line between malware and legitimate software isn't as clear-cut as we'd like (such as opt-in adware, or spyware to monitor prison inmates) so i started to wonder (genuinely) whether windows genuine advantage could qualify as a kind of ransomware. after all, it does demand that you (if you have a pirated copy of windows) pay microsoft for a legal copy of their software and prevents certain functions until you do.
