The BSA has been busy!

In the last month the BSA has publicized 4 separate settlements resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars:

    1. A Georgia woman was fined $250,000 for selling counterfeit software on eBay.

    2. Argus Technical Services of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Total Administrative Services Corporation (TASC) of Madison, Wisconsin paid a combined $145,000 for having unlicensed copies of Adobe, Microsoft and Symantec office software installed on its computers. This lead came from BSA’s online tip form!

    3. Author Solutions of Bloomington, IN paid BSA $50,000 for having unlicensed copies of Adobe, Microsoft, and Symantec software installed on its computers.

    4. Communication Technology Services, LLC of Marlborough, MA. Communication Technology Services paid BSA $80,000 to settle claims that it had unauthorized copies of Microsoft and Symantec software installed on its computers. (This is a Fortune 10 company!)

Just goes to show you – they don’t discriminate – from Fortune 100 companies to 50-year old women on eBay.
