Microsoft media player sound files edited using warez

Woops...(if true)...

PC Welt, the German computer magazine, claims that Microsoft has shipped its
popular Windows Media Player with sound files that are edited with an
illegal copy of SoundForge, a commercially available Sony program for
manipulating audio.

In one of the WAV files PC Welt discovered a reference to SoundForge 4.5 and
a user called 'Deepz0ne', who happens to be one of the founders of an audio
software cracking group called Radium.

It is unclear if Microsoft took the file off of a royalty-free sound effects
library, outsourced its sound editing to someone with an illegal copy or
used a warez version of SoundForge itself.
