Special report on mobile warez

"I guess it is flattering if we are making stuff that is good enough to steal or collect, but it's a pity these pirates won't help us pay for our costs to keep supplying them." 
-Digital Chocolate CEO Trip Hawkins

I believe piracy is an important (and underreported) issue for mobile developers, so I am pleased to announce the release of a FierceDeveloper Special Report: Mobile Software Piracy. The report is by no means exhaustive, but I think it does provide a nice overview of the situation. Expect a future report on some of the specific things developers can do to deter pirates without losing customers. -Eli
