More BS from the BSA

More BS from the BSA - or maybe it's just upside down, since the article's from Australia. Software pirates steal jobs in AU: BSAA. How do I know it's crap? "It would also add AU$6.8 billion to Australia's GDP. Chris Fell, managing director of IDC Australia, said the analyst took into account the increased cost to business of using licensed software, and the lowered maintenance costs that accrue from using licensed software, but could not quantify the figures." (emphasis mine)

Lies, outright lies, and press releases from the BSA.
