 Software piracy has run rampant.  A woman, surnamed Li, had been engaged in online sale of pirated Microsoft software at the minimum bid of one Taiwan dollar and also making laser labels and letter of authorization to cause confusion on the public.  Upon receipt of Microsoft’s complaint, the First Company of the Criminal Investigation Brigade under the Second Special Police Corps successfully arrested Li after evidence gathering and seized a lot of pirated copies of Win 10, Office 2013, etc. which involved the value of more than TWD6 million.  The police referred Li to the relevant district prosecutors office for suspected offenses of Copyright Act and Trademark Act violation.  (August 2017)
