Software Audit Essentials - Handling Vero Software Legal Demand Letters
In this episode of Vondran Legal Hour, Attorney Steve® discusses our experience handling cases with this firm. It has not always been easy. We seek to negotiate these cases in good faith, but it is not always easy" says software piracy defense attorney Steve Vondran. We have seen their demands range from offers in the low thousands of dollars on up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Many people are shocked and amazed when the receive the letter, or the phone call, from Vero (a Hexagon company) alleging willful copyright infringement . Many do not use all the products they are being charged with. Many have no idea someone inside their shop installed and/or used the software depsite anti-piracy policies and procedures that are in place to try to deter improper unliensed use of software programs.
At any rate, if you receive a letter from this company, as of the date of this intellectual property podcast, this is our general experience dealing with them, and their inside counsel who was not overly motivated to get anything done. This podcast represents our opinions only.
