Yankee pirates downed by Federation

Chemical company coughs up

Security for virtualized datacentres

The Federation Against Software Theft has won £300,000 ($525,000) from a US-based chemical transport company for using unlicensed software.

The Federation (it used to be known as FAST) said it was working on behalf of member company Achiever Business Solutions.

When negotiations between Achiever Business Solutions and the chemical company broke down the Federation stepped in.

Once it showed evidence of infringement the firm agreed to settle. ABS said it had recovered more than £1m in lost revenue since joining the Federation in 2003.

John Lovelock, Director General of The Federation, added: “This is the second major recovery we have undertaken on behalf of ABS in as many months. Back in May we secured a $75,000 settlement with a global courier company. Anyone who thinks that The Federation is an organisation without teeth needs to think again."
