The answer is:- He is not even supposed to have done that.- He is not a good programmer.- He did not have a legal license for microsoft office 2007.- He should know that many people might download his version and that is the risk one takes when he uploads or releases his thing to the internet.- He should avoid the risk and get a vedor for testing and they file a bug on the microsoft office website and his thing is fixed quickly.
And there is only 1 thing that is wrong and that is:- He is not allowed to post his launcher for free to the public. This is monopolizing information that belongs to microsoft and have made it an open source project to contribute to.
The point is:- He did not gain anything from it.- His thing is not a launchable that you can use to run your own copy of the program.- His launcher adds nothing to the original thing from microsoft office.
- Will the thing get a market share with people paying money or will it get a market share with people using it for free?- Is the original product better that what you are offering or is your product better that what the original has?- If you get a market share with people paying money then you profit yourself with that and you get a license for microsoft office.
