BSA is a sham

The BSA (Business Software Alliance) is not a lobby organisation "dedicated to promoting a safe and legal digital world" as its website claims. It's a representative office of its members with the specific intent of wiping out the piracy of its members softwares. And only its members.

This issue came up earlier today when one of the designers wanted to use Quark Express instead of Adobe Illustrator. Quark isn't represented by the BSA, whereas Adobe is.

Based on previous experience, we found that the BSA does not pursue cases of Quark piracy. Therefore we could install pirate copies of Quark with impunity and immunity.

Hahaha. We kill us.
