33220689 story BSA Claims Half of PC Users Are Pirates 585 Posted by Unknown Lamer on Monday May 21, 2012 @09:05PM from the gnu-is-a-crime dept. judgecorp writes "Despite continued pressure on business users to buy legitimate software, the Business Software Alliance (BSA) reports that the campaign seems to be failing. Well over half (57%) of users surveyed in a global survey admit to using pirated software. That's a big increase from the same survey last year — when 43% admitted to using pirated software. The BSA surveyed 15,000 people in 33 countries."
