Microsoft Amnesty Period
Facts dont lie, counterfeit software is costly. Using Pirated software can lead to a judgment that could close down your business for a violation of the law. This will damage the reputation of your business and cost you money.

Corporates that possess, use or deal in authorized software are liable to criminal and civil sanctions under the Copyright Act of Kenya.

To avoid criminal penalties as per the copyright Act of Kenya, management and representatives of corporates must ensure that all software used by their company is compliant during an amnesty period that ends on the 15th of December 2011.
Issued by the Kenya Copyright Board.

Just a reminder...incase you can't afford the licences you can always try Ubuntu.
