REASON #1: SOFTWARE LICENSE COMPLIANCE
Making sure that you have your software licensing agreements in order and compliant is a vitally important aspect that businesses unfortunately overlook alarmingly often. Not having the proper software licensing for the tools your business uses on a daily basis can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars and land you in legal trouble with goliath companies that you cannot afford to take on in the courts. Having software management services can insure your company isn’t at risk of this.
Below, you will find more information about why this is such an important part of any business and how you can help and protect yourself moving forward.
WHAT IS A SOFTWARE LICENSE?
A software license is a legal instrument, usually a document or contract, that governs the use and redistribution of software. Since all software in the United States is copyright protected, the software license grants the licensee the ability to use one or more copies of the software in a way that might otherwise infringe on those copyright laws.
WHY IS SOFTWARE LICENSE COMPLIANCE IMPORTANT?
It is important for business owners to have these software licenses, keep track of them, and know what they are. Hiring software license management services is a quick and easy way to solve this problem.
Anyone can report a company for suspected use of unlicensed software and there are even law firms funded by large software companies with the sole job of going after business owners who are not compliant. Having and using hacked versions of these programs can cost upwards of $150,000 per instance. So hiring a professional with expertise in handling and remediating software license compliance can save you a ton of money and keep you out of the courts.
