Disgruntled employees in the U.K. have a financial incentive to tell on their
employer if they suspect the software they’ve been using is improperly licensed.
The Business Software Alliance (BSA), a global software industry group that
collects data on software piracy and presses for greater control of software
licensing, is offering employees up to $32,000 for reporting software piracy
violations. The program, which has been in place for several years, was
increased from about $16,000 by the organization through the end of the year.
