UK anti-piracy group gets new flag waver

FAST Lovelock love-in

IP theft and corporate compliance organisation the Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) has installed John Lovelock as its new chief executive.

Lovelock, who joined FAST in 2002 and previously held the position of director general, said he hoped to focus on "upholding" software asset management and compliance standards.

He reckoned under his leadership the anti-piracy group would continue to put pressure on the government lobbying for the protection of intellectual property rights in the UK software sector.

"Our intention is to further strengthen our remit and focus directly on supporting and upholding standards in business, such as the recent software asset management standard launched in May 2006," said Lovelock. ®
