"New and growing type of software piracy" says SIIA

Author: JT Smith

The Standard reports that the SIIA filed separate lawsuits against two men, alleging that they
sold illegal copies of software products to people who had bid
for them at auction Web sites, said Peter Beruk, VP of the
antipiracy division at SIIA. Named in the suits are Michael Chu
of Los Altos Hills, Calif., and Christopher Julian Kish of
Chicago, who are both accused of violating the U.S.
Copyright Act, Beruk said. If found guilty, each of the
defendants faces a fine of up to $150,000 for each title
infringed upon.
