&#x201C;Pirated&#x201D; is not the same as &#x201C;lost sales&#x201D;! But maybe we really do want to encourage Asia to have large native software industry to compete with us by pricing ourselves out of the market. It&#x2019;s one thing to complain about unauthorized copies but another thing to say that all copies are lost sales.

SINGAPORE--Software piracy rates may have come down, but revenue losses continue to climb, according to a recent study released by the Business Software Alliance.

Piracy continues to be a major challenge for the global software market, said Jeffrey J. Hardee, Asia-Pacific vice president and regional director, Business Software Alliance (BSA), an international non-profit body dedicated to promoting a &quot;legal digital world&quot;.
