    Well, I signed up in good faith and for that I'm rewarded with nothing plus Microsoft now has another one of my email addresses. I didn't even download anything lol.

    Just got this today:

    Dear Frank,

    Microsoft contracted with us, Intrepid Consultants, Inc, to conduct the TechNet Plus Pilot Study program research and manage the activities of the pilot study. Our records show that you have recently signed up for a free TechNet Plus subscription through a registration link that was made available without authorization on a public blog.

    The registration link is part of a proprietary study and the party that shared the information was in violation of the terms and conditions to which they agreed to participate in the study. Membership to the Pilot study is limited and all members of the program are required to first meet survey requirements and then complete tasks and assignments over a two month period in order to qualify for and have access to the free TechNet Plus subscription. Since this was a privately conducted pilot study, at no time was it ever intended that a free TechNet Plus registration link would appear on a public internet site, which was done in violation of the terms to which participants agreed upon registering to participate in the pilot study.

    We are very sorry for the inconvenience, but for this reason, we have deactivated your subscription, as well as all other subscriptions resulting from the unauthorized publication of the TechNet Plus Pilot Study program registration link on a public blog. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.

    Kind regards,

    The Intrepid Consultants Team

    Got my email too.

    So it seems MS wasn't at fault for the link.

    All Illegitimate Customers will have no longer access to the online benefits and the product keys which have been requested will be blocked.

    Thats from technet, sums things up pretty neatly.

    the keys are still not being blocked as reported by many people... I'm wondering if they are just saying that to scare you into not using them cause it would seem many are working. I'll try a XP key one day when I get a chance on a machine and see what happens.
