On June 28, the ALLDATA Anti-Piracy team, in conjunction with the
Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force, concluded a six-month
investigation into illegally copied ALLDATA products being sold out of
Northern California.

The subject of this investigation was publicly advertising the pirated
software in his efforts to distribute it. Undercover officers conversed
with the target, who agreed to provide the illegal product in exchange
for cash. After the actions of the suspect placed him in violation of
California law, he was taken into custody.

The efforts of the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force in
collaboration with the ALLDATA Anti-Piracy Team resulted in the subject
being charged with felony counts of Possession / Sale of Counterfeit
Articles in reference to penal code 350 (A) (2), which states that the
offense involves 1,000 or more articles. On July 27, the subject pleaded
guilty to felony charges in Superior Criminal Court.


"We will not tolerate software piracy," said ALLDATA President Jeff
Lagges. "More than 80,000 ALLDATA customers appreciate the value
inherent in our software. Our customers trust us as the industry leader,
and we owe it to them to protect their investment. Let the pirates be
on notice that we will diligently investigate and prosecute every
suspected case of counterfeit software."
