Software-License Audits, the BSA, and Related Reviews
Ensuring your entity is in compliance with its commercial software licensing agreements can be much more than simply confirming you are not engaging in software piracy (inadvertant or otherwise). Violations in this regard can lead to significant issues with the BSA (Business Software Alliance) and the associated legal headaches.
Some of the most troublesome cases supported by Spectrum have involved issues associated with the software licensing of common applications and operating systems. Moreover, Whistleblower cases which involve the BSA can be particularly problematic.
Beyond meeting commercial licensing requirements, it is often critical to know what applications users have installed on their computers, particularly those without authorization. These unauthorized applications can lead to security-related issues, including breaches of confidential data, among other problems.
