The Somali pirates are so brave, because they deal with the US, EU, Chinese, etc. military.
Or, worst comes to worst, the Business Software Alliance. BSA – either directly, or even better – through their Bulgarian counterpart.
They would include the cases of kidnapped sailors and ships, in the so-called Special 301 Report, and as a result, the Somali pirates will have to start using the ransom money to… pay Microsoft for licensed software!
Guess who will be winning at the end?
