The article reports that after the attack on auction websites over sales of pirated programs, printers have been warned against buying software from Ebay. It notes that the Software & Information Industry Association claims that about 90% of software being sold on Ebay is pirated. Sales director Steve Emerson of the Turing Point Innovation (TPI) believes that the auction sites are not the problem. He adds that people who are serious about their business will not risk buying a software off an auction site.
