LONDON BRIDGE IS PAYING UP ...


The Register brings news of a settlement of a copyright infringement claim against London-based debt recovery software specialists London Bridge Software (LBS). It seems LBS has paid up £39,500 for using unlicensed software. The claim was brought on behalf of various software owners by the Business Software Alliance (BSA), according to whom LBS was quick to reach a settlement because of the embarrassment factor. The action followed an investigation after a tip-off received via the BSA's website.

The IPKat notes that last month the BSA doubled the maximum reward for reporting illegal software use from £10,000 to £20,000, in a campaign running until the end of the year and wonders if we will see a proportionate increase in BSA-led actions against the use of unlicensed software.
