To steer the vehicle which drives global change in software compliance, a dedicated team of reliable driving forces has helped pave the way.
CJCH Consulting is a leading service provider of protection relating to the intellectual property rights of software vendors with the aim of promoting technology and behavioural change, as software piracy is not a victimless crime.
The effects of software piracy have economic and social impacts on the day-to-day lives of all people. Unlicensed and unregulated software usage could result in safety, security, reputational, and cyber risks to the end user of the products and materials.
Our clients use various methods to detect and identify third parties who make use of software without authorisation. We leverage this information to build understanding in respect of the landscape around software and its use in the full value chain from concept through to delivery.
To address software piracy, we employ methods such as peer-to-peer monitoring, embedded technology, and open-source intelligence. These sources, amongst others, provide the foundation upon which our trained investigators identify instances of piracy, engage unlicensed users, and negotiate solutions in line with our client’s expectations. This is delivered both sensitively and in a way that recognises the value of the software being used.
The development and maintenance of software products require significant investment. Therefore, unauthorised distribution and replication of software, through piracy, poses a significant threat to the software industry, which undermines the intellectual property created through unlicensed software usage.
At CJCH Consulting, we recognise the importance of protecting intellectual property and ensuring compliance with global Intellectual Property laws. We are passionate about the services we deliver and the partnerships we have with our clients. We are committed to being your software compliance partner and providing ongoing support and bringing value to your business by protecting your software development investments.
