Software Piracy Initiatives Forum

August 4, 2009


How big is the software piracy problem globally? How big is the impact on your company's bottom line? How does your company measure it? What are you doing to address it?

The piracy scene is well organized and successful in its efforts to obtain and distribute software. Shouldn't the software industry be even more organized and successful in its efforts to address and confront it?

V.i. Labs is sponsoring a new group on LinkedIn - the Software Piracy Initiatives Forum to give software
vendors a venue for discussing these issues and share their
experiences to minimize piracy's impact on the industry.

If you are responsible for analyzing and addressing the impact of overt
piracy and license overuse or interested in getting a better understanding of the software piracy scene in general, please join the group and contribute to advancing the industry's efforts to combat piracy.
