ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the campaign "Don't Get Mad, Get Even" of the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA). This crusade is aimed at cutting down the rate of software piracy cases in the U.S. and promoting legitimate and licensed softwares by offering $500 reward for the first 100 people who can report pirated packages traded on the open market. It was launched to highlight auction sites' lack of effort to block and stop the sale of pirated software. SIIA senior vice president of intellectual property policy and enforcement Keith Kupferschmid stresses that auction sites such as eBay are reluctant to take necessary actions toward the reduction of the high-volume software policy in the industry.
