Balancing Anti-Piracy Approaches with EU Privacy Regulations

March 26, 2009


We're doing a webinar on April 16 with Alexander Duisberg from the international law firm Bird & Bird.

As we've discussed here at Code Confidential, software vendors are looking at anti-piracy strategies as a way of maximizing their revenues. As they consider the benefits of automatic software auditing, they also need to understand the interplay with EU privacy and data protection regulations to maximize the effectiveness of their efforts.

We'll cover:

  • Legal issues around automatic software auditing in the EU
  • The types of data you can collect and those you must avoid collecting (and which geographies are more sensitive than others)
  • How to manage privacy issues in a cross-border environment
  • How software vendors have evolved their anti-piracy approaches to recover revenue

More information and registration available here:
