Software Audit Information – Compliance Enforcement Companies
One company that might have sent you a demand (letter or email) to comply with a software licensing audit is Global Licensing Compliance. Although their emails look a little “spammy” or like it is non-legitimate, according to one source I spoke with, this company APPEARS (do not rely on this do your own due diligence) to be valid. So you may need to take the letter more serious than you thought and you may want to retain copyright legal counsel to assist you.
Who is Global Licensing Consulting?

Their site alludes to the fact that they represent other software vendors as well, but I was not able to confirm that.
Are they authorized to conduct software licensing compliance for Autodesk?
As noted above, one high up official indicated this appears to be a valid Autodesk representative, but this should not preclude you from performing your own due diligence, and this blog offers no warranties or representations, but rather just some general information that was passed along to me. DO YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE!!!
