Software Theft: A $63 Billion Problem

Posted: 2012-12-10 by ComplaintsBoard  [send email]

Well over half of the world's personal computer users — 57 percent — admit they pirate software. That includes 31 percent who say they do it "all of the time," "most of the time," or "occasionally," plus another 26 percent who admit they pirate, but only "rarely." Fewer than four users in 10 (38 percent) say they "never" acquire software that is not fully licensed. These startling findings come from a survey of approximately 15,000 computer users in 33 countries that together make up 82 percent of the global PC market. Ipsos Public Affairs conducted the interviews in January and February of 2012 as part of the ninth annual BSA Global Software Piracy Study.
