The Business Software Alliance is escalating its software piracy program by offering $1 million for software piracy tips, up from its previous $200,000 reward.

The Washington-based alliance, which launched its software piracy information rewards program in the fall of 2005, will offer $1 million for qualified reports of copyright infringement between July and October. The alliance said it has collected $22 million in settlements with hundreds of companies since starting the program. Many tips are from employees who report their company’s use of unlicensed software on office computers.
