Oct 28 2011 - 15:19

On October 3, 2011, the Bulgarian police officials, in cooperation with the Business Software Alliance (BSA) representatives, seized a computer and two computer systems with unlicensed software during their inspection of R–DM Sole-Proprietor, a company based in the capital of Sofia that sells computer systems with pre-installed business software.

Pre-trial criminal proceedings have been initiated under the Article 172a of the Penal Code of the Republic of Bulgaria and the computer configurations will be considered as evidence.

The BSA, a trade group representing some of the world’s leading software makers, through its cooperation with the public sector 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.
