Attorney Steve® News - Siemens software piracy enforcement - 2020 updates


VIDEO:  If you are involved in a software audit, compliance issue or infringement lawsuit for pirated software or other copyrighted content such as music, videos, or other creative protected content, it is SUPER IMPORTANT to understand the potential damages you, your company, and officers and directors potentially face.  This is the ONE video you MUST watch.  Make sure to SUBSCRIBE to our popular legal channel to join over 20,000 others who love our FREE informational videos!!


Our law firm is a leader in software copyright cases in the United States. We have likely handled more audits than any other intellectual property law firm on the West Coast.  For years, we represented businesses both large and small being accused of software piracy and these were cases brought in federal court (lawsuits) in Texas.  Now, we have seen a case where a software audit is being brought by bay area IP law firm Donahue Fitzgerald, LLP.  This firm is well known for representing Autodesk in cases involving unlicensed installation and use of products such as AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, Maya and other products.  Now, we see them representing Siemens.  

Why hire Vondran Legal for your software licensing disputes?

If you received a letter from a law firm representing Siemens (known to use "phone-home" piracy detection technology), call us for a free initial consultation.  The benefit of going with our law firm to represent you are many:

1.  We have handled hundreds of software license audits including Microsoft SAM audits, Microsoft SPLA audit, Vero, VB Conversion, Soildworks, Business Software Alliance ("BSA") and others

2.  We have amazing client reviews - all 5 star (because we get the job done, treat people right, and offer industry-leading "flat rate fees" (for non-litigation cases).  DON'T GET CAUGHT PAYING A FIRM HOURLY FEES.  YOU JUST MIGHT FIND THEY PUT THREE ATTORNEYS ON THE CASE AND BILL UP A STORM LEAVING YOU WITH A COSTLY LEGAL BILL AND A CASE THAT DRAGS ON FOREVER.  Get a quote from us, there is a reason we are a leader in handling these technology cases.

3.  We have more litigation experience (often) than the firms we are dealing with, or their individual copyright attorneys.  (we have appeared in over 250 state and federal litigation cases).  Check us out on

4.  We are not afraid of PEER REVIEW.  While many IP law firms "talk the talk" few are willing to put their knowledge to the test by publishing videos on the internet.  We have over 20,000 subscribers to our YouTube channel and over 2 and a half million video views.  You can see who we are, what we do, and you can learn about your situation which makes talking to a copyright lawyer easier and more informative.  Does your law firm show what they know or just write fancy blog posts?
