Miscrosoft vs piracy

Date: July 04, 2007

With a piracy rate of 73 percent in 2006, according to the Business Software Alliance (BSA), Lebanon remained one of the top intellectual property violators in the Middle East.

In the same period, losses caused by the illegal practice rose by $4 million to $39 million the BSA said in a study. "This is attributed to the unstable situation and the events that disrupted the country's efforts in putting a dent in piracy with the formation of the Computer Crime &Intellectual Piracy Reinforcement Bureau. Pirates have benefited from the chaos to increase their operations," the BSA said in its last report.
