Is Software Piracy Stealing Jobs?

[COLOR=royalblue]Reducing software piracy by just 10 percentage points worldwide would generate 1.5 million jobs and add $400 billion to the world economy, according to a study released Wednesday by the Business Software Alliance and IDC.[/COLOR]

That small quote should get you started on a very interesting article posted today at PCWorld.com. Unfortunately piracy controls are still very scarce worldwide IMHO; here in Ecuador piracy is done publicly, I mean it, and that's sad because with the exception of the occasional piece of junk, there are a lot of dedicated software makers and programmers that could have a better chance of success if piracy wasn’t so widespread.
