The British Software Alliance (BSA) has issued a High Court writ against a firm supplying IT training to the unemployed, alleging it has been using more than #650,000 of pirated software over 18 months.
This is the largest potential software piracy lawsuit to take place in the UK, following the case against Reid Kare College in Paisley, which settled out of court last year.
The college allegedly used 1,000 illegal software copies, valued at #50,000.
In this latest case, JHP Group was accused of using more than 2,000 unlicensed versions of software packages at 66 of its UK sites.
The plaintiffs cited in the High Court writ include Microsoft, Autodesk and Lotus. They have applied for an injunction to prevent JHP from making further use of their software and are requesting damages.
