How do you spot a software pirate?

UK software company Micro Focus is demanding at least $10 million in damages from NSW Police.

It claims NSW Police has been using pirated copies of their computer software for more than a decade to run their COPS (Computerised Operational Police System) - the largest criminal intelligence database in the country.

It was a routine request from the NSW Ombudsman's office back in August 2010 that first set off alarm bells for Bruce Craig, the Australasian managing director of Micro Focus.

"Our team was out at the Ombudsman's and in a conversation they said they were accessing the COPS database using our software," he told 7.30.

"And we said what software - you don't own our software?"

Someone in the IT department is in a lot of trouble.
