Don’t Get Caught Out With Illegal Software

A timely announcement came out yesterday here in the UK as the Business Software Alliance announced a £24,000 fine for a UK company after it was found to be using illegal Microsoft Software. Michala Wardell , chair of the Business Software Alliance (BSA), said such fines were more than most small businesses could afford. “The financial penalties aside, using unlicensed software can also carry multiple business risks. Companies may not have access to the same support services and patches as legal versions, for example, which can lead to downtime and exposure to viruses,” she said. As 1E announce revolutionary new technology to help bring licensing costs under control it’s worth bearing in mind the consequences. Aside from a hefty fine, there’s the embarrassment of being named and shamed, but there’s also a cost to the whole economy as a study from IDC for the BSA claimed that a 10% reduction in software piracy over the next four years could create more than 10,000 jobs and £5.4bn in new economic activity.
