BSA et al. Crackdowns on Unlicensed Software Pushing Users to Open Source?

That’s what TechDirt suggests. There’s been much written about how Autodesk’s gray market helped it build its licensed market, but then from what I understand open source CAD is still young. Other markets, like office suites and geospatial are far more robust. It’d be great to get some numbers on users switching from illegally licensed proprietary solutions to open source, but that’s not an easy taks.
