Slashdot | Sony BMG Sued For Using Pirated Software

HAAHAHa. hahaha. hehehee. sniff Oh dear. wow.

This is a good one. Pretty spectacular actually. Apparently, Sony BMG, strong member of the RIAA, was caught using pirated software on their servers in France. 47% of the software on the servers was pirated. That's quite a bit of piracy there.

Questioned about the fact that this is perhaps the single act of an employee, the CEO of PointDev retorts, "I think piracy is linked to the policy of a company. If the employee has the necessary funding to buy the software they need, it will. If this is not the case, he will find alternative ways, as the work must be done in one way or another."
