Microsoft Gulf, along with Kuwait Ministry of Commerce and Industry, recently conducted raids on two computer shops using personal computers loaded with pirated software in Hawalli, Kuwait.
As a member of the Business Software Alliance (BSA), the international association which promotes a safe and legal digital world, Microsoft provided the essential information that helped Kuwaiti authorities identify and raid the illegal traders, said a statement.
The raids resulted in the seizure of two computers loaded with pirated and unlicensed versions of various Microsoft programs.
