Training centre caught using illegally copied software

A Dubi training centre has been caught using pirated software following a raid by the UAE Ministry of Information and Culture

A Dubai training centre has been caught using pirated software. The training centre was raided by the UAE Ministry of Information and Culture, and found to have 24 PCs running illegally copied software.

Scott Butler, CEO of the Arabian Anti-Piracy Alliance (AAA) commented: “Copying software has become easy so we have to be vigilant and monitor the market to seize violators. We cannot achieve this aim without the joint efforts between the affected parties and government departments. The UAE Ministry of Information and Culture is taking great efforts in its support for IPR issues in keeping with its commitment to launch awareness campaigns in all IT sectors to ensure the implementation of IPR laws.”

“The UAE government’s seriousness in dealing with the issues of IPR protection aids our strategy that aims to protect the interests of software companies. The recent raids by the authorities are an effective tool to stop this dangerous activity which can cause great harm to the IT sector,” Butler added.
