Microsoft said Monday that it is taking action against groups that sold copies of Windows and Office discounted for academic use to regular users.

The suits were filed in the United States, but they target groups that operate internationally, posing as academic resellers in Jordan and elsewhere in that region and then reselling discounted Microsoft products in the U.S.
