In Russia, they began to punish again for pirated software

A resident of Pervouralsk, Lyudmila Islamova, received a year of probation for using a hacked 1C computer program. This decision was made by the Pervouralsk City Court of the Sverdlovsk Region.

Islamova was accused of copyright infringement on an especially large scale with the use of her official position. She faced up to six years of imprisonment, but the court reduced the punishment due to the fact that she entered into an amicable agreement with the copyright holder, and also due to the fact that she has three young children in her upbringing. The defense considers even such a sentence to be too harsh, since it will negatively affect the further fate of the woman, and is preparing to appeal against it.

Islamova is the head of one of the companies in Pervouralsk. In 2020, during an inspection, law enforcement agencies found seven computers with a pirated version of the 1C accounting program in the office of her firm.
