Three Houston companies recently paid the Software Business Alliance nearly $300,000 for unlicensed software use. The settlements demonstrate the need for increased awareness of proper software asset management.
The Business Software Alliance is a watchdog group representing software manufacturers. Jenny Blank is the group’s director of enforcement.
Blank says there are several steps a company can take to ensure that only licensed software is being used.
The Business Software Alliance was founded more than 17 years ago.
