"Strengthening of the creative industries and the protection of intellectual capacities is key for the future of both Hungary and the companies that operate here" – commented dr. Dzsinich, recently elected chair of BSA. "This is one of the basic steps and guarantees of the business use of creative intellectual power. Software, as well as all other intellectual products need the systematic and dedicated enforcement of the legal regulations on behalf of the authorities and all those asserting the law. We cannot be satisfied with the fact that the rate of illegal software has remained unchanged at a level of 42% for years. Companies operating legally should receive support, while as strong actions should be taken against those that violate intellectual property. BSA provides full professional support to the authorities in their fight against counterfeiting. We are convinced that more can and should be done. With more effective action, it is realistic to expect that the rate of illegal software could be decreased to the current EU average level of 36% within a few years."
