The Negros Occidental Language and Information Technology Center held the first virtual graduation yesterday for its 170 scholars, who completed the program.
Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson, in his message to the graduates, said online ceremonies like the graduation will not be able to give the graduates a genuine feeling of the rite of passage that a customary graduation would.
Audit on unlicensed
software to expand
Optical Media Board (OMB) chair and chief executive officer, Anselmo Adriano, said the National Committee on Intellectual Property Rights (NCIPR) aims to expand the audit on the use of unlicensed software to local government units.
In an online press briefing of The Software Alliance yesterday, Adriano said the Department of Information and Communications Technology is doing the audit in national government agencies, and they are hopeful to extend the audit to the LGU level.
He said the conduct of an audit on the use of pirated software in the public sector was proposed during an NCIPR meeting last year.
