Ghost Piracy: Work-From-Home Software Piracy Worries BSA
The Software Alliance (BSA) is helping enforcement authorities in Southeast Asia to crack down on businesses that use unlicensed software. This includes “Ghost Piracy,” where work-from-home employees use pirated software remotely. This is a dangerous trend that, according to the BSA, can have disastrous consequences.
Over the past decades, the Software Alliance (BSA) has helped major software companies including Adobe, Autodesk, IBM, and Microsoft, to fight against under-licensed businesses.
This has resulted in raids and audits at companies worldwide, with computers carefully inspected to see if the businesses have paid their dues.
