Campaign seeks to collar illegal software in Sharjah

DUBAI — Joint anti-piracy entrapment operations have resulted in the arrest of three illegal traders and confiscation of various counterfeit items during separate raids launched earlier this month in Sharjah.

The raids were initiated by Microsoft, as a Business Software Alliance (BSA) member. A combined team of anti-piracy operatives and UAE authorities seized nearly 100 assorted pirated CDs and three personal computers installed with illegally downloaded software during the surprise operations.
