A South Korean OEM, Myung Ge, has been ordered by a Utah district court to pay $2.4 million damages to Novell, after it was found guilty of counterfeiting software.

The company was also found guilty of illegally unbundling OEM software, and of distributing upgrade products to ineligible customers.

Judgment has been a long time coming for Novell - which first filed suit against Seoul-based Myung Je in May, 1998.

Acting on a tip-off, Novell's anti-piracy team ran an audit through Mjung Je and discovered "several discrepancies (and) a pattern of unauthorised behaviour". ®
