The BSA released its 2007 State Piracy Report - a report many are claiming to be very misleading:
For example, the lost tax revenues to state and local governments -- an estimated $1.7 billion -- would have been enough to build 100 middle schools or 10,831 affordable housing units; hire 24,395 experienced police officers; or purchase 6,335 propane-powered transit buses to reduce greenhouse gas emissions."
what do you guys think?? ,
you can see the report here as well: http://www.piracyisacrime.org/statestudy07.pdf (or somewhere on BSA's website i assume?)
