Software Business Alliance, what a sham! Extracting money from the Los Angeles Unified School District for "pirated software"; shame on you, software developers. For many years, ever since personal computers have become popularized, software developers have utilized the natural inquisitive nature of man as a free advertising medium. Why has software been "pirated" for so many years with the developers smiling all the way to the bank?

Tracking bootlegged computer software could pose a monumental task for the Los Angeles Unified School District, where investigators face the prospect of searching nearly 62,000 campus computers, many loaded with several software programs, officials said Wednesday. To settle allegations of software piracy made by an alliance of software manufacturers, the school district is considering creation of an eight-member team to replace unlicensed programs with legal versions.

A federal grand jury in Los Angeles has indicted 11 people on charges of conspiring to distribute nearly $31 million worth of bootlegged software programs. The indictments, handed up Wednesday, stem from a two-year investigation that uncovered a network that replicated more than 10,000 illicit software CDs, licenses and manuals. The defendants allegedly distributed them to warehouses and then processed payments when the counterfeit products were sold, according to the U.S.
