Authorities in the UAE are continuing to crack down on the illegal use of software in training centres, with a recent raid netting 30 PCs uploaded with non-original software. The raid, on a training centre in Dubai, was a result of co-ordination between the Police, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Information. It follows a recent raid on a training centre in Sharjah, which netted 70 PCs loaded with pirated software. “The latest raid reflects the seriousness with which the UAE is combating software piracy,” said Scott Butler, CEO of industry body Arabian Anti-Piracy Alliance (AAA). “The UAE’s lead in launching campaigns against piracy should send a clear signal to all parties involved in illegal practices that those who violate IPR laws would face tough punishment.”
