Avoid Microsoft Software Piracy Fines

Pirates are still a hot topic these days, and we’re not talking about the kind roaming in open waters. Microsoft software piracy, especially in business circles, could end up costing your company in name, reputation and big money.

In the United States, more than a quarter of software programs used by businesses are illegal copies, according to the Business Software Alliance (BSA). Their statistics show that for U.S. small businesses, including those with 100 or fewer employees, the piracy rate exceeds 40 percent.
