Philippine authorities are now sending “warnings” in a form of formal letters to local end-users reportedly using pirated software. This change in approach aims to encourage more self-regulation, a police official says.
“One of the problems we see is the Internet cafes. Since we’ve been allowing people to report via the website, we’ve been getting too many reports. And we don’t have the resources to go after all of them. So we started talking with the Business Software Alliance,” Col. Noel Delos Reyes, chief of the AFCCD-CIDG and member of the Pilipinas Anti-Piracy Team (PAPT), says.
