Taking the Law Seriously

Just had an e-mail alert from my accountancy press releases saying how the DTI is taking the issue of illegal/unlicensed use of software very seriously and plans to introduce new/better legislation to fine and even imprison those using it. Funnily enough, my employers had a visit from someone policing this not long ago and they got terribly hot under the collar about it, spend loads of time checking and making sure they were within the law, recording loads of things, making lists, asking everyone what they used and generally taking it all terribly seriously. Pity everyone seems to take the issue of unlicensed software much more seriously than the injuries being caused to those that might be using it. Then again, there’s money and profits at stake…..Funny old world, ain’t it?
