The ‘Centre’ is, “part of a broader initiative launched by the Arab LeagueArab League and Khasawneh & Associates to reach beyond industry and law enforcement audiences, to educate schools and students on the value of intellectual property,” says the group statement, quoting Microsoft lawyer Dale Waterman as saying:
“Software piracy and counterfeiting are damaging the prospects for consumers, businesses and economies across the region. Microsoft is committed to working towards a regional reset on intellectual property. The partnership with the Arab LeagueArab League and Khasawneh & Associates is an important step forward.”
