Un juzgado chino ha condenado a tres años y medio de prisión y multas superiores a los 100.000 euros a los creadores y distribuidores "Tomato Garden", una versión personalizada de Windows XP que, eliminaba información, añadía nuevas herramientas o modificaba el anti-copia original. Aunque el software se ofrecía gratuitamente, generaba beneficios por publicidad durante su descarga. Por ello, la compañía que gestionaba la Web donde se encontraba el programa, se ha ganado otra multa.

Éste es el mayor caso de fraude de la propiedad intelectual informática en China, ya que se calcula que unos 10 millones de personas han descargado el programa desde su creación, en 2004.
