Submission + - NSW Police taken to court for massive software piracy (abc.net.au)

LordLucless writes: The New South Wales police have been sued by Micro Focus for around 15 years of copyright infringement. Allegedly, they have been using Micro Focus' mainframe software throughout the entire force, while paying for only a fraction of the required licenses. More, they supplied other departments — NSW Police Integrity Commission, NSW Department of Corrective Services and the NSW Ombudsman's Office — with the software.

The other departments have already settled out of court, but the police are still stalling.
