How daft can you get?

The Business Software Alliance has claimed that software piracy is robbing communities of much needed funding for police, education and housing.
The US pressure group, which is funded by major software vendors, acknowledged that four out of five pieces of software in the US is bought legally.
But the remaining pirated material is costing the industry $11.4bn and local government $1.7bn in lost taxes every year.
This would pay for 100 middle schools or 10,800 affordable housing units, or hire nearly 25,000 experienced police officers...
