Unlicensed Software Seized in Bulgaria
On September 27, 2010, the Bulgarian police officials, in cooperation with the Business Software Alliance (BSA) representatives, seized a computer with unlicensed software, during their inspection of the company “R” OOD, which sells computers with preinstalled business software in the town of Blagoevgrad, southwestern Bulgaria.
The BSA, a trade group representing some of the world’s leading software makers, aims to reduce unfair trade practice in the information technology sector by preventing the distribution and use of unlicensed computer programs infringing the rights of its member companies.
