The Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) has reconfirmed its commitment to incentivising Software Asset Management (SAM) businesses and individual consultants to whistle blow on the illegal business use of software.

This is the first time FAST is specifically seeking to encourage members of the SAM practitioner community to report deliberate infringers who are thumbing their nose at legal licensing obligations.

Under the terms of the Incentive Payment Agreement, if a report leads to the successful conclusion of an illegal software use case, the whistle blower can claim a payment calculated as a percentage of the net damages.

Under the Agreement, a whistle blower can report illegal software use to FAST through its dedicated web site page.
