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