    Vernon v. Autodesk

    in Legal

    Vernon v. Autodesk

    This episode of Vondran Legal Hour features an overview of the case of Vernon v. Autodesk and asks and answers the question of "Can I buy software at a garage or office sale and sell it on an internet auction website such as eBay without risking federal copyright infringement?"

    This is a very imporant question, and often misunderstood.  Most people think when they "buy" software that they become the "owner" of the software and thus have a legal right to sell the software online.  This is not always true and it is very important to look at the terms of the Software Licensing Ageement.

    If you are acting outside the scope of the licensing agreement, you may winde up posting the software for sale on your eBay "power seller" account only to find out the software company sends out a "take down" notice that might result in getting your eBay account (or Amazon.com account) shut down.

    Federal Copyeright law protects software products and the members of the Business Software Alliance ("BSA") which is comprised of some of the largest software companies in the world - such as Adobe, Microsoft, Autodesk, Apple, Bentley, Symantec etc., take issues of alleged "software piracy" very serious.  They even have an "anti-piracy" hotline that gives rewards to ex-employees who blow the whistle on their employers use of unilcensed (meaning unpaid for) software, or the failure to purchase the software from authorized resellers.

    Open Up New Revenue Streams Today

    in Business

    There are many reasons to have a leasing program in the Small and Mid-Sized business market. 
    With over 80% of these businesses currently leasing something a financial offering is a must in this economy.  The main challenge in technology channels to starting a successful leasing program is that resellers tend to be more technical than sales oriented and they do not fully understand the value of leasing.  Leasing benefits the MSP more than the client.
    Based on our experience working with thousands of end users, starting and managing the Ingram Micro Preferred Leasing Program as well as working with other resellers here are the benefits of having a successful leasing program.
    The long term benefit is capturing the customer footprint similarly to what companies like Xerox, IBM, and Dell have been doing for years.  The accumulation and effective use of this data is what will increase the re-sale capture rate for the MSP 2 to 4 years down the road.  This increases the value of the MSP.
    Addition reasons for putting this offering forward:
    Maintaining Margins  Additional Revenue Streams Increase Average Transaction Size  Accelerating Sales Cycle  Increased Consumables Sales. Catalyst Finance understands the IT industry and how to implement leasing programs. By understanding the challenges noted above and by being able to ability to deliver solutions that satisfy the issues, Catalyst can implement a leasing program that delivers the desired results.
