    I realize this is a very old article, and I promise you I searched (three separate times) for threads that had already covered the article. If one exists already, blame Google, which for some reason powers the search on this site.

    Enough of that, here's the article: How to pirate Windows 8 Metro apps, bypass in-app purchases, and more | ExtremeTech

    And here's a snippet:
    The principal engineer for Nokias WP7 and WP8 devices has demonstrated, in rather frank detail, how to pirate Windows 8 Metro apps, how to bypass in-app purchases, and how to remove in-game ads. These hacks arent exactly easy, but more worryingly theyre not exactly hard either.

    He then goes on to explain how to change the xml of a trial app to make it the full ad-free version, etc. etc. What I'm hoping to find out here is has MS already addressed this?

    muchas thanks.....
