Rosetta Stone Inc., a leading provider of interactive language-learning solutions, announced that it has reached settlements in cases against 10 people for trademark and copyright violation. These users pirated the company’s software on the global scale, illegally downloading, sharing, copying, and selling fake language learning programs. Rosetta Stone, being a member of BSA (the Business Software Alliance), is dedicated to struggling against software piracy and delivering the public the risks that can be associated with installing this software.
Tom Adams, the CEO of Rosetta Stone, together with eleven other CEOs, the list including Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer, Symantec’s Enrique Salem, and Adobe’s Shantanu Narayen, held a meeting with members of Congress and members of the President Obama administration in Washington DC recently. The agenda of the meeting was to talk over the supporting copyright protection on the domestic and world markets. The company's strong enforcement program alongside with meetings held on such a high level demonstrate Rosetta Stone's continued commitment to struggling against software piracy and strengthening the copyright laws.
Michael Wu, general counsel of the language-learning software company, said they were very pleased that targeted individuals have agreed to cease their illegal operations that can harm the users. Of course, counterfeited software often differs from the original one. For example, it can easily contain spyware, intended to steal the consumer’s personal and confidential data. In addition, pirated software may lead to operational failures caused by malware or viruses.
As the part of their program of educating the consumers about the methods of checking out whether the software is original, Rosetta Stone would like to remind everyone that before buying any kind of software, including their own language-learning solutions, users are strongly recommended to verify that a distributor is authorized to sell it. In case you have found out it is counterfeited, of just would like to inquire about its legitimacy, you can report it straight to the company via e-mail. Also, all the consumers are invited to call the BSA (Business Software Alliance) Anti-Piracy Hotline at 1-888-667-4722, where they can receive information about software piracy throughout the industry.

|They were GREEDY profiteers. We share only to share. As stated in your article on Spain: "It has been for years that a number of Spanish judges have come to a decision that file exchanging is considered legal as long as thereâ€™s no money or other compensation involved beyond the exchanging of content available among many users. In a similar vein, noncommercial peer-to-peer file-sharing is legal". So Share; Feed the Need & Seed......|
