I would never turn someone in for a reward, no matter how deserving they may be - I'm just not that mercenary. I also wouldn't do it for revenge, I don't believe in revenge.
And when I said I'd turn her/him in, I mean that after confronting them, I'd go up the chain of command. After that, I'd contact the software owner, not the SBA etc.
Approx 10 years ago while I worked for a marketing & research company, we got all new systems throughout the company. With 3 offices, this entailed 800+ systems. When they were installed, every single pc had a full version of Microsoft Office on it.
I knew that the company had not paid the licensing for two reasons (1) They were cheap, and (2) we had been under cuts for months due to a merger.
I asked around about it over the next month or so with other management staff, and got either blank looks or dismissive evasions. IT guys would not even discuss it!
I had just about decided to make a call about it, when out of the blue, 3 guys flew in from corporate on a Friday afternoon, and stayed until late Sunday night...removing every single instance of Office from 125 workstations, leaving the app on only mgmnt and supervisor stations.
The branch mgr confided to me that Microsoft had found out and dropped the hammer, and this was part of a quick settlement with them.
The really lame part of all of this, is that the employees at those 800 workstations were not allowed to run ANY application except for the various phone dialer apps we used - they could in fact be fired on the spot for opening even something so minor as Notepad, so there was no reason for the stuff to ever be on the machines except lazy IT didn't want to make different images for different departments, and management did not care.
I left for another job less than a month later.
