Developing measures such as a software industry promotion bill would help to respond to high piracy levels in the Dominican Republic by tightening intellectual property regulations, Microsoft Dominicana CEO Juan Lora was quoted as saying by local news site Hoy Digital.
Piracy is Microsoft Dominicana's biggest obstacle in the country, given that 76% of software there is illegal, according to IDC figures.
New legislation could also seek to promote the software industry, both for local consumption and for export, making investments more attractive for large international companies.
For every US$1 that Microsoft makes in the Dominican Republic, an additional US$15 are generated in the local economy, the executive noted.
