In the past few years, the Business Software Alliance (BSA) and the Software and Information Industry Alliance (SIIA) have had great success with their eye-catching offers to potential whistleblowers for tips on enterprises using unlicensed software. These trade groups represent the major software publishers and one of their prominent functions is targeting unauthorized software usage (as well as, in the case of SIIA, unauthorized content usage). They take action against software resellers and end-user organizations that make unauthorized copies and work with law enforcement agencies to coordinate enforcement of criminal copyright laws.
