Legitimate sales of software higher in Vietnam than China

According to the United States Ambassador to China, sales of legitimate software is higher in Vietnam than in China, despite China having over 15 times the population of China. Software piracy is believed to be the cause for the low level of sales in China, with an estimated 78 percent of all software installed on PCs in the country being pirated copies.
