01 Dec 2003

Business Software Alliance, the organization that represents the interests of global software developers, recently honored software dealers in Oman for showing strong commitment to combating software piracy by signing the Code of Ethics drafted by BSA to protect copyrighted software, ameinfo reported.

Sixteen dealers were presented with certificates by Jawad Al Redha, Co-chairman, BSA Middle East for signing the code. The Code of Ethics lays down that the signatories would ‘neither commit or tolerate the manufacture or use of distribution of unlicensed software' and 'would only supply licensed software to customers.'

'The Code of Ethics developed by Business Software Associates complements other ongoing initiatives that will jointly contribute to reduce software piracy in the region. The Copyright Laws passed in many Middle East countries, and backed up by government-supported raids against software pirates, have been a milestone achievement for BSA.
