Alliance acts on risky software

The Business Software Alliance (BSA) today launched a UK initiative aimed at stemming the rise of pirated software being sold through the channel.

Backed by Microsoft, Novell and Lotus, the programme will issue dealers with a pack comprising a code of ethics certificate for vendors, and brochures for customers on the risks and penalties of using illegal software.

The BSA can be contacted by telephone on 0800-510510.
