Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of RAM!
Entertainment Software Association reports that Malaysia, then China are the worst offenders world wide for piracy of Software. Ummm.. Yuh! Run down to Imbi Road plaza, or head to Kowloon's many Computer Malls, and you'll see a steady stream of software pirates.
"Malaysian factory-made game and software dubs have been seized in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, the US, and South America."
I remember seeing some really sophisticated POS systems utilizing bar codes, CD covers with the actual software kept at a different location for 'protection'. Not only is the software at risk, but I recall seeing manuals printed in both Chinese and English as well. Ladies and Gents, this is a big business, and will take lots of resources to bring this down.
