Qld steel firm pays damages for unlicensed design software
A Queensland steel company has been forced to pay $17,500 in damages for using unlicensed software.
The Software Alliance (BSA) settled a case with Wulguru Steel for the illegal use of design software products Autodesk and AutoCAD.
Wulguru was using a pirated 'non-genuine' copy of the two products, such as those downloadable from the internet for free or for a discount.
The BSA was tipped off about the piracy by a person who knew about the unlicensed software use, via the BSA web reporting form.
