When it comes to dealing with Software Publishers and their Compliance Audits KNOWLEDGE IS POWER and IGNORANCE IS COSTLY.

The Software Audit Resource Center {“SARC”) is a FREE comprehensive information blog that helps small and large businesses understand the complexities of dealing with an audit by a major software vendor (such as Microsoft, Adobe, or Autodesk) or a trade association such as the Business Software Alliance (“BSA”). SARC provides questions to a large number of the most frequently asked questions on the topic of software compliance and provides both audio and video content on an array of subjects such as:

1. What is “willful copyright infringement”

2. How did the software publisher find out about unlicensed software?

3. What type of evidence can prove a business is compliant?

4. Are these audits “voluntary” or mandatory?

5. What are the typical penalties for using unlicensed software in a company

6. Are there any defenses such as “fair use”

7. Does a business really need to hire a lawyer to resolve the dispute?

8. Will copyright infringement by unauthorized use lead to criminal charges?

9. What happens if a case cannot be settled, will this lead to software infringement litigation?

10. Can officers and directors of the company be held personally liable for infringement?

These questions, and many others, are answered on the website which is one of the most detailed websites on the internet on this topic and which and does not require any subscription fees to access.
