Kuwaiti government targets four companies using illegal software
The Kuwaiti Ministry of Information announced that it has conducted another successful raid against four companies operating in the finance and industry sectors, where 161 personal computers were found, all loaded with unlicensed software. This operation required thorough coordination on behalf of the ministry's inspectors, who conducted the four raids in a rapid and simultaneous fashion.
Over the last weeks, the Ministry has called on everyone in the country to respect intellectual property laws, in order not to face the legal fallout caused by copyright violations. All companies using unlicensed software have also been requested to legalize their applications.
