They are helping architects and engineers build the future.  We have helped many clients who receive emails demanding a "contractual audit" (based on the EULA), and also official demand letters from their California based law firm "Donahue Fitzgerald" (a company we have dealt with hundreds of times) in various types of software audits, and piracy litigation in the United States.

If you received a demand letter (and you are "Outside the U.S.") it is important to understand the Byrne Convention and your legal liability in the United States where even "officers and directors" of the company may be held "personally liable" for software infringement in their company, especially if:

1. They had a financial interest in software piracy (not paying for licensed software)


2.  Had the "right and ability to supervise"
