A London-based debt recovery software specialist has paid a £39,500 fine for using unlicensed software. This settles a copyright infringement claim brought by the Business Software Alliance against London Bridge Software Holdings for its illegal use of software, including Macromedia products.

According to the BSA, London Bridge Software was quick to reach a settlement. This is unsurprising, given the embarrassment factor at play. The investigation against London Bridge followed a tip-off submitted via the BSA's website.

Last month the BSA doubled the maximum reward for reporting illegal software use from £10,000 to £20,000, in a campaign running until the end of the year. ®
