i can honestly say 79 or 82 per cent of pc games in brazil are pirated,and yes i took the number out of my ass,but its really close,just talk to ANY teenager,and the only ones who have a legal copy are the rich ones,or the guy has like 5 legal games out of the 25 he played.for windows thats even bigger,pratically all domestic user have a pirated version,only corporations and offices uses legal version,and a really small number of consumers who can afford it and CARE about it.
My boss has the web premium suit for adobe in our office with still xp legal,copy,ask her what version of windows and adobe she has on her laptop ?

In the "Europe" numbers one will have to remember that Europe extends from Portugal to the Ukraine.

I don't suspect many bits of software sell for retail with a nice legal copy in Rumania or Albania.

Hi,

Piracy (at great scale) is not kidd's business but maffia business (from China to Russia .. USA's include \:\) )
And be sure they make it seriously and with great benefits... (they are not paying a dollar of taxes \:\) )
The benefits are of course reinvest in more lucrative activities .. like drugs and weapons smuggling .. terrorists support ..etc.. \:\)

Flying is the perfect vocation for a man who wants to feel like a boy, but not for one who still is.

I have heard that here inAus the numbers are pretty high as well, not sure on it as just about every one I know all pay cause we all whinge about the over the top cost compared to the USA which I spose indirectly supports the high number theory.

DRM advocates remind me of the global warming crowd. I won't buy DRM infested software, and I won't buy carbon credits either. ;\)
