The regional drive against piracy is continuing with Bahrain’s Ministry of Information raiding two companies that were using unlicensed software on 74 PCs, announced the Business Software Alliance (BSA).

Bahrain’s actions won praise from BSA’s regional director, Jawad Al Redha, who said the Kingdom’s raids proved its support for copyright laws and those people working in the IT sector.

Pirated software found on the PCs included: included Microsoft Windows 95 and 98, NT, and 2000; Microsoft Office 97 and Visual Basic 4.0 and 5.0, in addition to Adobe Photoshop 5,5 and Symantec Norton Anti Virus 2002 and Autodesk Autocad 14 and 2002.
