The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Looking for a way to earn some spare cash for the holidays?

Well, if you’re in the U.K., and know of a company who is using pirated, unlicensed, or otherwise illegal software, you’re in luck. Just turn the company in to the Business Software Alliance (BSA), and they will pay you ten-percent of the value of any illegal software recovered, up to $37,000 (20,000 pounds).


According to the BSA, “Companies using illegal software run the greatest risk of being reported by current or former members of IT staff.”

The moral of this story is, of course: keep your IT staff happy.

[And, oh yes, of course, don’t use pirated software – but even if you don’t, you should still keep your IT staff happy.]

  1. I have received a lot of scam emails and do not know who to send them to. They all come from the UK please help me. I have researched all of them there is a leak in every single one i have saved all the emails ond want to know who to send them to

  2. I’m no fan of corrupt, exploitative companies (and my God, there’s enough of the bloody sods) but wouldn’t it be better if people acted for slightly more altruistic reasons than simply to get their grubby little ‘mitts’ on some free money…
