Microsoft's Genuine Fact Files, a worldwide campaign to combat software counterfeiting and increase awareness of software licensing issues, is being bolstered by a series of animated videos, including "Suspicious Cargo," which tells the story of a company plagued by counterfeit software.
    The film incorporates Maya, After Effects and Flame to add visual effects to the animation that make it look almost like a film, especially during the first scene when the rippling water establishes the tone.
