Computer retailer raided third time for installing pirated software

A stubborn computer retailer is raided for the third time for selling computers installed with pirated software.

State Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry chief enforcement officer Abdul Rosik Yakub said on Thursday, four officers found three notebooks and three desktops installed with 12 copies of pirated software from the operation carried out on Wednesday at about 1.30pm.

He added that the value of the seizures was estimated to cost about RM33,000.

"The shop had been raided twice in 2011.

"The operation was a result following a complaint from the software copyright owner," he said in a press conference at the ministry office in Downing Street here.
