Government Agencies accused of Software Piracy

One in four of the programs used by Swedish companies and government agencies are unlicenced. Piracy watchdogs are therefore asking government to introduce a zero tolerance program for pirate copying in the public sector.

Business Software Alliance and Swedish Software Association also want the punishment for illegal distribution of copyrighted material to be increased to a maximum of four years imprisonment, and more resources to police and prosecutors who work with violations of intellectual property rights.
