No pirated software at Low Yat

KUALA LUMPUR: Plaza Low Yat has become the first shopping mall specialising in information technology in the city to launch Sikap Tulen, a campaign initiated by the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry last July against software piracy.
During the Sikap Tulen launch at the plaza yesterday, the management, together with Business Software Alliance (BSA) and Microsoft Malaysia, pledged its full commitment to the ministry to ensure that the premises were free of pirated software.

BSA Malaysia committee chairman Ronald Chua said he believed the joint effort with the ministry would result in better results in the campaign against the sale of pirated software.

He said following yesterday's pledge, the plaza would only offer genuine software.

"Tenants of the mall have been strongly advised against dealing with pirated software and if they are caught for providing such (pirated software) services, they will have to face the law."
Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry deputy secretary-general Daud Tahir said the ministry was delighted with the commitment to stamp out software piracy at the shopping mall.

"Low Yat is the first IT mall to come forward in the ministry's effort to eradicate software piracy. Although Malaysia's piracy rate is lower than that of Indonesia, China and India, the statistics still worry the ministry."
