A court in Provo, Utah, awarded Novell $25.9 million (#15.4 million) in damages last week in a ruling against Network Trade Center (NTC) and its owner, Mark Bondiett. The company was found guilty of fraudulently obtaining upgraded Novell products and selling them on to customers who believed them to be legitimate, fully-licensed products. The court found Bondiett and NTC liable and ordered that they pay damages and legal fees to Novell. The case was originally filed in 1995 and is believed to be the largest ever ruling in a software piracy case.
