Pirate Software Sellers

Sep 16th, 2006, in Business & Economy, by

The courts may be getting serious about the selling of pirated computer software.

Two men, Benny Saputra and Apeng, felt the wrath of a South Jakarta court last month for selling pirated software at the Ambassador shopping complex.

Benny was sentenced to 14 months and Apeng to 30 months. Apeng, it seems, has no plans to appeal the verdict or sentence.

Benhard Sibarani, representing the company which had had its copyright violated, BSA, was overjoyed at the verdicts. Intellectual copyright was beginning to be taken seriously in Indonesia, he said.
