V.i. Labs to Host Live Webinar on Software Piracy within the EDA Industry

Session with the Electronic Design Automation Consortium will highlight Trends, Strategies and Best Practices

WALTHAM, Mass — March 4, 2009 - V.i. Laboratories, (“V.i. Labs”), a leading provider of software protection and piracy business intelligence solutions, today announced it will be co-hosting a webinar with the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDAC) on software piracy concerns. Many EDA vendors realize businesses around the globe are using their software illegally, but few have quantified the scope of their problem or established strategies for recovering the lost revenue. This webinar will look at ways to combat software piracy and recoup those losses.

On Tuesday, March 10 at 2 p.m. ET, EDA Consortium Anti-Piracy Committee Chairman Scott Baeder will be teaming up with V.i. Labs’ VP of Products Victor DeMarines to review the industry’s approach to piracy over the years and discuss the different strategies that members are now using to squarely address the problem.

“Piracy is a growing problem within the EDA industry. It is not just software license revenue at risk, we know that pirated EDA software is becoming a competitive advantage for business overseas,” said Scott Baeder, chairman of anti-piracy committee at EDA. “One of the EDA Consortium’s missions is to drive increased security and license management capabilities for the benefit of the industry. We look forward to providing participants with valuable insight and best practices that will help them address EDA piracy issues.”

Webinar attendees will learn:

  • How the piracy scene works and which anti-piracy strategies are the most appropriate and effective
  • Recent activities and research by the EDAC Anti-Piracy Committee
  • How automatic software auditing can help piracy victims quantify the scope of their piracy problem and generate leads to recover revenue

A Question and Answer period will follow the presentation.
