A FORMER prospective Ipswich Conservative councillor who allegedly reproduced the Microsoft computer company logo to sell software appeared at court.

Peter Murray-Cowan, 40, of Sirdar Road, attempted to avoid press cameras as he entered Ipswich Crown Court wearing dark glasses and concealing his face behind a case.

Murray-Cowan, a prospective former councillor for both Chantry and Stoke Park, denied 12 charges of relating to being in possession of and trying to sell computer software bearing a logo identical to that of Microsoft.

Dressed in a black pinstripe suit, blue and white striped shirt and yellow tie, Murray-Cowan refused to enter pleas to the majority of the charges and Judge John Devaux entered not guilty pleas on his behalf.

Murray-Cowan also said some of the charges were unknown to him and asked to see paperwork before entering pleas.

Murray-Cowan was released on bail and his case was re-listed to be reviewed on October 22. A trial date was set for December 10.
