+ - Software piracy by country

Submitted by UnHolier than ever
UnHolier than ever (803328) writes "A short article and interesting graph from the Economist. "America and China lead the world in terms of total losses from piracy at $7.2 billion and $5.4 billion respectively. But when calculated according to the number of computers in each country a different picture emerges. Cash-strapped countries dominate the leader board. In Azerbaijan, which comes out on top, computers are loaded with $262-worth of pirated software on average. But Iceland is the surprise second-placed nation" with about $220/computer."

All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
