Microsoft quietly shuts down Office Genuine Advantage program [zdnet.com]

Late last week, with absolutely no public announcement, Microsoft quietly retired one cog in its antipiracy machine.

An anonymous tipster informed me on Friday that Microsoft had shut down its Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) program as of Thursday, December 16. Previously, if you wanted to download an Office add-in or template, you had to pass through a validation step first, confirming that your copy of Office was "genuine."

Not sure I understand the significance of it?
