Software Litigation Law Firm – We can help with Microsoft Audits, BSA software demand letters, and Microsoft copyright infringement litigation
For years our law firm has handled software audit cases and licensing disputes brought by companies such as Autodesk, Vero, Siemens, Solidworks, and Microsoft. Many Microsoft licensing disputes are brought through their trade association - THE BSA - (Business Software Alliance). The BSA can be very aggressive in pursuing cases of infringement, which can often be due to an "informant" who is seeking a REWARD which is based on the settlement amount of the case. We are leaders in the United States in handling software infringement and piracy defense matters. If you received a notice of subpoena, or copy of a summons and complaint, or even a software audit demand letter from the Business Software Alliance (a large trade organization based in Washington D.C.) call us to discuss your case. We offer a free initial consultation and low (non-billable hour) fee representation.
