In a move that will cause acute embarrassment to the august body, Swedish computer company Eurodex AB has filed a $1.5m lawsuit against the prestigious Karolinska Institute for allegedly using pirated software in its research work. The Karolinksa Institute, which awards the Nobel Prize for medicine, is accused of using pirate copies of StatView, a statistical package for analysis for which Eurodex holds the exclusive distribution rights for Scandinavia. The Business Software Alliance has also filed a police report on the alleged misuse of software from member companies such as Microsoft Corp and Adobe Systems Inc; Eurodex’s managing director Deniz Ozen said the institute had bought 18 StatView licenses, each costing $1,070, but he believed the package was being used by up to 1,500 computers.
