Top 10 Pirated Software 2008
The Software & Information Industry Association released its annual Anti-Piracy Year in Review this week. Among other things, the SIIA made a list of the titles most pirated by companies and titles pirated via the internet. For some reason I thought people would pirate cooler stuff than anti-virus protection.
Symantec Norton AntiVirus, Adobe Acrobat, Symantec pcAnywhere, Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk AutoCAD, Adobe Dreamweaver, Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator, Roxio Toast Titanium, Ipswitch WS_FTP, and Nero Ultra Edition. The most frequently pirated software titles on the Internet last year were: McAfee VirusScan, Symantec Norton AntiVirus, McAfee Internet Security Suite, Intuit TurboTax, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat, Intuit Quicken Home and Business, Symantec Norton pcAnywhere, Symantec Norton Ghost, and Adobe Creative Suite.
