Software Take and Take

The Business Software Alliance reports that of the $80 billion of software installed on computers in 2003, only $51 billion was obtained legally. The BSA estimates that a 10% reduction in software piracy across Europe would result in 250,000 new jobs and $23 billion in additional tax revenue by 2006.

Industry survey finds 36 percent of software sold in the world last year was pirated, by Paul Geitner, AP Business Writer, from the Detroit News, July 8, 2004.
