Not sure what he means, but I've heard from several shops that BSA
damaged some of their systems.
I don't like the BSA, and I think they inflate piracy claims to further
For example, the BSA has been known to use gross machine sales to
determine projected sales. Something like this:
machines sold * top N packages available = projected sales
They then calculate piracy as the difference between that artifical
number and actual sales.
