BSA Stats

According to IT NEWSAFRICA THE Business Software Alliance (BSA) has intercepted 18 314 auctions selling 45 000 items of pirated software, worth a combined US$22 million. The anti-piracy organisation is also tackling the illegal sale of software via peer-to-peer (P2P) networks and other internet-based channels. The BSA’s activity on the internet has increased three-fold since 2007 and includes a heightened focus on the crackdown of pirated software in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
