Raid against Piracy

Written by

There seem to be policy organizations that are serious about fighting piracy! Hungary, actually with 41% pirated software “not even that bad”, seems to be really serious. But first, let me just take those 41% up for a second: This means that 41% of the work you do is stolen. I think its 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.
