1.02 Piracy Prevention

VirtualUA, Inc. actively and aggressively enforces its piracy policy. What is piracy? The illegally obtaining or copying of software programs. It has become a worldwide problem — more than $11 billion is lost to piracy every year. Because software is valuable, and it is easy to create an exact copy of a program from a single computer, software piracy is widespread. The illegal copying of software programs is a crime and is also against policy here at VirtualUA, Inc.! In the United States and many other countries, copyright law provides for severe civil and criminal penalties for the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of copyrighted material. We do not allow the use of illegally obtained copyrighted materials in our organization, doing so is ground for immediate suspension. Copyrighted material includes, but is not limited to, computer programs and accompanying sounds, images, and text. Under U.S. law, infringement may result in civil damages of up to $150,000 and/or criminal penalties of up to five years imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine. Please join VirtualUA, Inc. in its piracy prevention efforts. You can report incidents of software piracy by emailing our Corporate Security Department at [email protected]. If any staff or members are guilty of piracy you will be terminated immediately from the organization.
