Software piracy in Lebanon remained high relative to the global average despite a slight decrease from 2017, the U.S.-based Business Software Alliance said in a report released Wednesday. The group estimated that of the total software units installed in 2017 in Lebanon, 69 percent were unlicensed – a slight drop from the 70 percent estimated in 2015, 71 percent in each of 2011 and 2013, and 72 percent in 2009 . Lebanon came under increasing pressure from the United States, European Union and international business groups to crack down on software and computer piracy.
