This morning's news from the BSA about settling with a Nevada-based engineering company for $205,000 reminded me about a press release I saw a couple of weeks ago.
The press release, "Software Piracy Police Target Chicago Businesses Despite Recession," was put out by the law firm Scott & Scott:
The press release noted that the BSA was "increasing its enforcement efforts in the Chicago area" and offered advice on how Chicago businesses can protect themselves.
A few questions jumped out at me:
Well, as today's news from the BSA shows, software piracy does occur in the U.S. quite a bit, and they are recovering settlements with these businesses. Many law firms do a lot of good work around the area of compliance,but I do find it interesting that at least this one firm has created a specific defense practice here.
