ALLDATA -- Cracking Down on Software Piracy
ALLDATA Wins Case Against Pirating and Counterfeiting of Registered Trademark By a Long Beach-Based Business Computers, Networks and Software Distributor
ELK GROVE, Calif., Feb. 2, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- While many automotive repair shop owners know that copying and/or distributing copyrighted software illegally is considered piracy, what they may not be aware of is that even possession of software that has been illegally copied is piracy.
To protect their customers and product integrity, ALLDATA(r) is aggressively pursuing civil and criminal action against all software pirates. "ALLDATA has a zero tolerance policy on software piracy," says Susan Slish, Product Security Program Manager, ALLDATA LLC. "In addition to continually improving our software's internal security, we investigate all leads regarding the unlicensed distribution of our products." Susan adds, "We want criminals to know that they will be caught and prosecuted."
Recently, two individuals, Andy T. Tran and Vu P. Nguyen from Business Computer Solutions in Long Beach, California, were charged with copyright infringement. They were sentenced to five years' felony probation, restitution to be paid to ALLDATA over a 5 year period and 60 days of community service.
