SAP India has filed a civil suit against Integrated Business Solution (IBS), an unauthorized training institute based at Kolkata for infringement of copyright with the high court of Delhi. The local commissioner appointed by the high court of Delhi raided IBS.

During the raid in the company’s training centers at Gariahat Shopping Complex (Kolkata), it was found that IBS was running unlicensed versions of the SAP software on its several computers and servers. As part of the court order, the local commissioner seized all these computers and servers.

Alan Sedghi, president and CEO of SAP (Indian subcontinent) said, “We are looking at further intensifying our campaign by working closely with the authorities against these unauthorized training institutes.”

Some of the other institutes, which have been cracked down earlier include Indian Satellite Research & Development Organization (ISRDO), Growel Softech, SAPzen Consulting, NeoLogik and United Systems.
