    MANILA, Philippines -- The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) raided the office of Philippine game development company Anino Games Inc. August 22 for alleged software copyright infringement.

    The raid resulted in the seizure of 36 computers that were installed with alleged illegal copies of several applications from software developer Autodesk Inc. Among the allegedly pirated software that were found were 3D Studio Max 2008, 3D Studio Max 9, AutoDesk Maya 8.5, AutoCAD 2008, AutoDesk Maya 2008 and Combustion 4.

    A complaint was filed at the NBI's Anti-Fraud and Computer Crimes Division (AFCCD) by AutoDesk, a member of the Business Software Alliance (BSA). The group has been promoting the use of original software and seeking prosecution against alleged copyright violators, BSA said in a statement.

    Yung pag develop kaya nila ng Anito noon ay pirated din ang ginamit nila? hehhe

    They learned the lesson in the hard way. Another ouch for the pirates. Sana magbago na sila.

    they're using a pirated software to develop their games, so i guess it would be OK to pirate their games too right? an eye for an eye...

    right? right...
    morality wise, it's still wrong... hehe...

    problem is, none of their games appeal to me...

    thanks for the news kylster...

    IMO, tama ang ginawa ng AutoDesk na ipa-raid sila dahil ginagamit nila ang mga nabanggit na pirated softwares for "commercial purposes". Although kailangan din talaga ang suporta ng Game Development Industry sa Pilipinas... dapat ay humingi na lang sila ng malaking discount or support sa AutoDesk... palagay ko, hindi yun magmamaramot... sa madaling salita, abuso naman talaga sa part ng Anino.

    Nakakalungkot... pero dapat ay nagtutulungan silang dalawa para sa ikauunlad ng kanilang industriya sa Pilipinas... huhuhu

    Ang sakit sa loob na malaman na ganun ang ginawa nila, the mere fact na sila ang naunang game development company sa pilipinas, pero ano ang ginawa nila diba, actually ang autodesk may program sila para sa mga starting company with little budget on software, bakit hindi nalang nila ina-avail yun.

    Thanks sa paglipat

    Uhm sa banks, actually pag sa banks naman, di ata napipirata ang softwares na gamit nila, they don't actually use third party Software for security reasons na rin, they invest on their software eh. Ang alam ko lang na talagang gamit nila na kailangan ng license eh yung Office Solution nila and OS... Siguro yung mga rural banks yung mga maliliit na bangko yun ang mostly siguro pirata

    Eto kasi ang problema, if gagamitin na natin sa pang big time why not purchasing those software kasi mababwi din naman yun lalo nat okay sa market ang mga produktong nagawa.

    Kung maliitan lang pede na yan pero still it is not advisable to used pirated hanggat kaya nating gumastos at kikita din naman yun.

    ayaw nga nila gumastos ng mga yun eh, sa OEM lincense nga umaangal na nung mag canvass ako try ko rin mga FPP lalo pang nagisip at in the end they are happy naman using pirated softwares

    sana nga hehehehe, kaya lang parang hindi talaga sincere ang department concerned na tumutugis sa piracy kasi december 2006 yata may narecieve yung management, a letter nasa red envelope ang ganda nga and that is from BSA pero wala naman nangyari.

    sana kumidlat na ng kumidlat dun at sana yung kidlat ay mgat taga PAPT, OMB,BSA,NBI. para matupok na ang mga mapanglamang.
