The Business Software Alliance has paid out $136,100 in rewards to 42 people who reported software piracy. In other words, they noticed that their school or company had illegal copies of a program. Illegal copies at schools are common, and a lawyer we know says that oddly enough, he’s noticed illegal copies are common at law firms he’s visited.


Anyone who has information about possible software piracy can report it confidentially via BSA’s online reporting form at, or via BSA’s toll free hotline at 1-888-NO PIRACY.
