Stop Software Piracy

$10,000 bounty awarded to ‘insider’ for reporting enterprise software piracy

Wilcom International continues to work hand-in-hand with the Business Software Alliance, tracking down and fining software pirates all across the globe. A highly successful tactic has been the use of a bounty, rewarding informants for taking a moral and ethical stance.

It was in our very own back yard here in Australia, that the BSA rewarded an anonymous informant with a $10,000 reward when they tipped off a company using pirated CAD and productivity software. The result was a $160,000 settlement to avoid any further and more serious prosecution.

“We work in a competitive industry and while we’re all trying to get ahead, it didn’t feel right using infringing copies of software to give the business an unfair competitive advantage.”
(told BSA under the condition of anonymity)

Expanding our anti-piracy programs into many countries, including the USA

Wilcom is further expanding its anti-piracy program, and is now working with new partners in many countries including the USA, where it gained immediate success with a USA based company who have now legalized all their pirated EmbroideryStudio systems.

Wilcom will continue in its efforts to detect and take action against software piracy and will continue to expand the program into more countries during the coming year.

The benefits of going legal…
