Vendor Responses to Software Piracy - Part 2, “The Reaction Phase”

December 10, 2010


Join host Dan Thompson and guest Michael Goff for the second of three podcasts that address vendor responses to software piracy (listen to Part 1 on the "Discovery Phase").

In this podcast, we cover the "Reaction" phase and discuss common responses by software vendors when they learn that their applications have been cracked and are being used unlicensed. We compare these responses to the benefits of taking a piracy business intelligence approach and look at the recent news from Avast as an example of measuring the scope of a problem to enable data-driven decisions.
