Software Piracy Level in Armenia 90 Percent
Armenia currently has a 90 percent software piracy rate, the Business Software Alliance (BSA) representative Narine Mkrtchyan informed on March 29, 2011, adding that the Government itself does not use licensed software. She noted that only the Justice Ministry and the Ministry of Education and Science use licensed software.
On the other hand, as Mkrtchyan stated, 70 percent of large-size Armenia companies, especially the banks, are using legal software. She also said that the BSA is working with insurance companies and credit organizations to supply them with genuine software.
