BEDEMIR: Well, now, uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I wait until nightfall,

+ - BSA Looks To Members For Anti-Piracy Technology->

brianwells writes: An article on CNN indicates that with the apparent success of Microsoft's Genuine Software Initiative, the BSA is looking for its other members to come up with similar ways to prevent copying. Robert Holleyman, head of the BSA, is quoted as saying that he expects such technology to be "a tool that is customer-friendly, that will reduce levels of piracy ... and make it easier for customers to interact with the product."
