Pirated Software Drops in KoreaA government body called "Program Deliberation and Mediation Committee" (likely a bad translation) announced that in 2005 the percentage of programs in use that are pirated dropped for a third year. The current rate is 32%. By user 16% of businesses and 43.4% of households used pirated software. For businesses the most popular pirated programs were utility and maintenance programs. Households tended to steal multimedia software, graphics and CAD, and web development tools.
Now that is the article I read. What I do not understand is most of the pirated software for "Households" are business applications. As I mentioned before about flawed polling methodologies being rampant in Korea, I wonder they are defining a "business" versus a "Household".
