European Software Lobby Threatens Schools

“The Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) has threatened to prosecute educational establishments that use improperly licensed software.

“The pressure group, which lobbies on behalf of the proprietary software industry, has threatened to take headteachers, schools and local education authorities (LEAs) to court if they are found to have any unauthorised software. FAST claims this is the first campaign of its type to target primary and secondary schools. The group claims the software industry is ‘at a huge risk from the availability of illegal downloads.'”
