Software Compliance Group, your partner for business success?

Who is the Software Compliance Group?  What do they want when they send you a audit letter?


Did you receive a letter from the Software Compliance Group (“SCG”)?  Were you served a copy of a summons and complaint from the Milord & Associates?  If so, call to speak with a copyright infringement lawyer to discuss your legal options. Possibly you are dealing with this company due to illegally downloading and using CNC CAD/CAM Mastercam software.

Software Infringement Notice

You may have received a phone call or letter from one of their non-lawyer software licensing compliance representatives.  Be careful, we have had a recent bad experience negotiating with this company and instead of negotiating in good faith, they pulled a fast one (like a “software troll” will do), during a good faith negotiation process. In short, they are not to be trusted and frankly I am surprised a reputable software company would allow their representatives to negotiate in this fashion.

Unlike law firms and attorneys who have ethical and professional responsibilities, this firm is a loose cannon in my opinion and will change the terms of their offers, even when the case was proceeding toward a final conclusion.

Contact a Infringement Defense Law Firm

If you received a call, letter or invoice from this company, you need to take it serious.  Call us at (877) 276-5084 to discuss potential responses to their copyright infringement notices.  We should note that CNC has been known to file a lawsuit over software infringement, so it is important that you have a licensing professional review your case and advise you on potential defenses, mitigating factors, and potential strategies for dealing with this company who can change their negotiating position on a whim in an effort to exert a bully whip on unsuspecting companies who may only downloaded the software to “evaluate” it, a potential fair use under the copyright laws.

We offer low flat rate fees to take this legal issue OFF YOUR PLATE, and a track record of successful software settlements
