The Business Software Alliance and Associacao Brasileira das Empresas de Software announced a record judgment of $65 million in a software piracy case involving Brazilian advertising agency Artplan Comunicacao S/A. The case stems from a request made earlier this year by Adobe, Autodesk, Microsoft, and Symantec. Authorities in Rio de Janeiro found 382 pirated software programs in Artplan's offices following a raid last March.
