Adobe Filed Software Piracy Lawsuits in Europe

The SIIA (Software & Information Industry Association) filed the first pile of copyright lawsuits in Europe on behalf of its member Adobe Systems Inc.

As the part of the association’s new anti-piracy campaign within the Europe, SIIA examined and filed 3 lawsuits against those German and British who used to sell counterfeit or illegal Adobe programs on eBay. As the cases are still ongoing, the names and IDs of the sellers can’t be revealed now.

SIIA’s spokesperson announced that this first bunch of lawsuits outlines a new front in the industry’s war on software infringement. The outfit succeeded to track and pursue several hundreds of American software counterfeiters, to recoup millions of dollars for its members, and sometimes even put the defendants in prison. Starting controlling and enforcement in Europe as well, the association is voicing its plans to stop software pirates hurting users and developers all over the world.

At the very beginning of this year SIIA decided to expand into Europe with its online anti-piracy plan and started looking after online sellers over there too. Most often SIIA operates the following way: firstly, it generates leads and uses regional investigators to purchase the suspected products from software counterfeiters to find out if the product is pirate. In cases when such sellers didn’t produce the software but bought it elsewhere, the outfit then launches another investigation in order to reveal the identity of the original supplier.

Within last 3 years, the association has filed over a hundred of lawsuits against unauthorized eBay sellers and also online sellers on any other sites who dealt in counterfeit software of any kind. Many of those accused had to pay thousands of dollars in reimbursements. Moreover, it pursued some criminal charges that led to defendants’ sentences to prison time. SIIA also succeeded to track the upstream sources of pirated products and to pursue the suppliers violating the law.

SIIA warns everyone to pay attention to the product they buy. If its price appears too low, it’s most likely counterfeit or otherwise unauthorized. But even in these cases, the company selling it to the consumers doesn’t necessarily create the pirated software – some of them might have purchased it at a cheap price from an illegal source for reselling it at a profit. Still, the industry’s goal is to stop the software piracy and educate both consumers and sellers to make sure they are buying or selling only legal products.

RUkiddin avatarSeems Like Adobe is Like Microsoft - People love to hack/crack their software - going back to the early days. Even when they bought out MacroMedia. Both Ebay and Craig s list seem to be stepping points for bootleg software? Wasn't there a article just a few weeks ago that blamed the Adobe Script for a Gov't site being hacked? Pretty aggressive of Adobe and SIIA to seek prison time. There is always the foxit PDF reader!

menahunie avatarRUkiddin - I agree 100%. Adobe is like microcrap; it is outdated and over priced junk.
There is much better and way cheaper software out there. Explain to me Adobe why you require over $500.00 for a basic photoshop package?
There is even free ware out there and software writers who ask for donations and get it; WHEN THEY MAKE A GOOD PRODUCT.
I have paid them; then since their product is very good and company like Adobe buys them and screws everyone..
