The company should have switched to Linux, QCAD and a whole bunch of other
productivity tools that doesn't require the BSA.

The BSA conspiracy should preach what it prays for and recommend

or into government and lawmakers until they preach the benefits of 
open source and Linux alternatives to piracy.
