TechNet Software Licences Priviledges has been downgraded by Microsoft

Microsoft TechNet has long been a home for computer professionals to obtain full, legitimate copies of Microsoft software, including Windows (including Wndows 7), Office and Windows Server for evaluation purposes. As a result, and because these people would need to try the software on different PCs and in different configurations, each product would come with up to 10 product codes, each of which could be activated 10 times.

According to Microsoft;

Microsoft is committed to helping prevent software piracy, which often results in end users being the victims of software counterfeiters. Counterfeiters abuse product keys to create fake software packages and distribute these to the public. These packages are not licensed, do not have support, and can also include malware and spyware.

Therefore, Microsoft has decided to limit the number of product keys available through TechNet Subscriptions, for all products, to five for TechNet Professional and two for TechNet Standard. TechNet Subscriptions is intended to support software trial and evaluation, versus a production environment. We offer other programs for volume purchasing and installation. We believe this change maintains a sufficient number of product keys for the majority of our customers based on usage data, while greatly reducing the overall risk of piracy and counterfeiting. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this action may have caused our subscribers.

Now TechNet standard subscribers will get only two product keys with 10 activations each. TechNet Professional subscribers will get five product keys with 10 activations each.
