BSA makes a spectacle of Bausch and Lomb

'Caught using illegal software'

Another day, another "illegal software" settlement, another company humiliated by Business Software Alliance press release.

In the spotlight today is the Scottish offices of Bausch and Lomb, the posh purveyor of eyeglasses. The company had not bought enough licences to cover the software it was using, the BSA says.

Worse, "the illegal software on this particular company's system was not even necessary to the company, who have since deleted it from their network".

But how was it found out? The BSA does not say. ®
