Government Agencies Running Unlicensed Software in South Korea in 2010

From January to August 2010, government agencies in South Korea were cited over 2,600 times for using pirated software.

In 2009, over 1,900 citations were given to government offices, and around 700 cases in 2008. The increase in citations is due to an increase in monitoring software.

Most of the software piracy citations were found in regional branch offices rather then central departments.
