Buy Pirated Software - Get $500 Free

Buy pirated software, Get $500 free!. Sounds too good to be true?. Well better believe it. The SIIA(Software and Information Industry Association) has brought out a plan whereby anyone who accidentally buys pirated software online can receive upto $500 if reported. Though there are no restrictions on what the prize money should be spent on, the SIIA says they hope that it will be used to buy legitimate software. As Ebay and other auctioneers are not doing much to prevent counterfeiting the SIIA say they were forced to adopt this program to place more control. The program is on till January 30th 2007.
