As we have already told you last weekend, pirated copies of Halo 4 reached the web, but the Redmond-based technology company is making efforts to stop them from spreading on the Internet.

Microsoft is reportedly banning consumers who installed a pirated version of Halo 4 and continues to issue warnings that using illegal copies of an application could result in enforcement action.

“Consumers should be aware that piracy is illegal and we take vigorous action against illegal activity related to our products and services. Playing pirated copies of games, such as Halo 4, is a violation of the Xbox LIVE Terms of Use and will result in enforcement action, such as account and console bans,” a Microsoft spokesperson was quoted as saying by ausgamers.com.

Microsoft also struggles to stop pirated copies of its software from being used in China, as the company has received information that four large state-owned companies are currently using cracked Windows and Office solutions.
