Glasgow-based travel agency Barrhead Travel Services Limited was caught using unlicensed copies of Adobe software and had to pay out £10,000 which includes a settlement as well as the cost of paying for the required licenses.
The case is being used as another example of the risks that firms run when they cut corners on their software costs and adds to a lengthy list of offenders that the BSA has already settled with this year.
Michala Wardell, chair of the BSA UK Committee, said that it would of course take action against any company that was not using legal software.
"The financial penalties could far exceed the initial outlay of buying licensed software, a burden businesses can ill-afford to bear in the current climate," she said.
