China's way ahead of India on software piracy list -The Economic Times:
India with 74% piracy rate has managed to slip out of the list of 20 countries with the highest incidence of software piracy, despite a 1% increase in piracy rate. China, with 90% piracy, occupies the third slot — after Vietnam and Ukraine leading with 92% and 91% piracy rates, respectively.

In India, it’s corporate end-user piracy where small and medium segment businesses use unlicensed software that is a constant worry. For every two dollars worth of software purchased globally, one dollar worth was obtained illegally.
