The Stop Online Piracy Act currently being discussed in Congress has been much maligned with claims from many sources that the bill essentially amounts to online censorship. V.i. Labs doesn’t support it either but not because it is censorship, but because it simply won’t stop online piracy. Trying to stop piracy by adding new tools to disable access to the piracy channels is a futile strategy for software vendors. Past experience suggests that these tactics only create new methods and approaches for sharing pirated content (for example, the rise of cyberlocker service providers). V.i. Labs believes software vendors should focus their resources on reducing the piracy of their products by tracking the adoption of unlicensed software and legalizing organizations and users through education and direct compliance programs.

Thanksgiving always brings thoughts of spending time with family and friends. It also gives us time to reflect on the events of the past year.  In this slideshow, V.i. Labs takes a look at the five biggest mistakes or “turkeys” that have happened in the software piracy area in 2011.
