The Business Software Alliance (BSA) has announced a settlement for alleged copyright law infringement with Castleford-based FSH Maintenance.

It claimed that the building services provider was found to be using unlicensed copies of Microsoft software. The cost to the business totalled £15,000 in damages and purchasing software in order to become legal.

Alyna Cope, member of the BSA UK Country Committee, said: “This case highlights the financial repercussions of breaking copyright law. Although FSH Maintenance was cooperative throughout our investigation, it was found to have illegal software installed and was required to pay damages.

“Not only do settlements like this cause significant dents in profits, illegal software use also suggests a level of negligence and corner cutting. The abuse of intellectual property rights is a serious offence and we want to make it clear that use of unlicensed software will not be accepted.”
