Why does your Corporation allow the NSA to spy on everyone who uses a Windows Operating System through the use of advapi32.dll for starters?

becuase they only realised that they were losing $$$ from people copying / downloading windows after they released windows 98, so they added the activation to windows xp to make sure people dont copy / download illegal copies of windows and they get there money
