§ The Earl of Northesk
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether any government departments or agencies are operating illegal software. [HL65]
§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey
In July 1999, the Cabinet Office Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) issued guidance to departments and agencies reminding them of their obligations to acquire all software legally and to use it 47WA in accordance with the conditions of the licence. The guidance reinforced the code of practice endorsed by the Federation Against Software Theft (FAST).
