It’s not just the big fish they are after anymore! The BSA nabbed a small design consultancy in the UK and fined them £3,000 ($4,827), following a tip from a whistle-blower that the company was using unlicensed Adobe, Autodesk and Microsoft software.
This doesn’t seem like much, but it just goes to show that even small businesses are vulnerable and need to keep their licenses in check. The BSA, and software vendors themselves, do not discriminate and will go after businesses of any size who are abusing their copyrights. Take control of your software assets. So many companies pay too little attention to it and don’t even realize they are violating the terms and conditions of their contracts!
