Meredith Derby writes: "One-third of software in use today is pirated, according to the Business Software Alliance (BSA), a worldwide anti-piracy organization. If your company uses illegally downloaded software, the BSA is after you. If they catch you, your company could spend a bundle on new software licenses. Rather than living in fear, you could stop using licensed software, said Evan Leibovitch, Chairman of the Board of Brampton, Ontario-based Linux Professional Institute. In other words, stop using Windows and go open source, he said. If you do, the BSA can't touch you." More of the interview at SearchWindowsManageability.techtarget.com.
