I have just recieved my latest PCR daily newsletter which lists the latest Rogue Traders Microsoft has shamed.

After a couple of google searches I realised that a company i've used a few times has been prosecuted by Microsoft ( not sure when ).

I found a link to a document here:
http://download.microsoft.com/documents/uk/licensing/homeuser/illegal-traders/E_North%20West_Litherland%20-%20Spacebar%20Computers,%20August%202009.pdf

And it mentions about a complete list of rogue traders available but the link in the document does not work.

Can any provide me a list or link to this?

Because I like many people have lost money over time to these companies so it's fairly obvious this would be an area of interest

As a general rule, if the price is too low, it is probably counterfeit.
