Doofus Of The Day #760

Today's award goes to the Business Software Alliance.

The Business Software Alliance -- a proprietary software industry group -- has pulled a controversial ad that promised cash to people who snitched on friends and employers who used pirated software, after they were credibly accused of pirating the image used in the campaign.

There's more at the link.

Talk about sending the wrong signal . . . !
