There seem to be policy organizations being serious about fighting piracy! Hungary, actually with 41% pirated software â€œnot even that badâ€, seems to be really serious. But before, let me just take those 41% up for a second: This means that 41% of the work you do is stolen. I think a significant negative impact to the economy.
Anyway, the Hungary police just ripped a huge BitTorrent network apart: Police Raids Tear Apart Hungarian BitTorrent Scene. As I understand, this does not really target the software market but the entertainment industry, but still, they seem to be fairly serious. Besides the servers they seized, this is to me a very strong signal towards people using pirated copies that this is not just cool but a real criminal act.
Interesting to see how this will move on.
