The Future of Software Piracy and License Compliance

As the SaaS model of delivering software to customers continues to grow, many software suppliers wonder about the impact on the future of software piracy and license compliance. It’s a topic we’re interested in, too: we share an annual update on software piracy statistics based on aggregated infringement data from Revenera Compliance Intelligence. My colleague Vic DeMarines, VP of Product Management, Software Monetization, has written about why piracy will be irrelevant by 2030 and what suppliers should do about it now.

There are many layers to software license compliance and a proactive strategy on piracy is just one element of a holistic approach to software monetization. Regardless of your deployment model, actionable insights into revenue leakage should be on your radar.

So I’m really looking forward to digging deeper into these topics in our upcoming expert roundtable discussion where I’ll be joined by Vic to discuss:

  • The latest software piracy and license compliance stats and trends including the Top 20 geographies with unlicensed software usage
  • The impacts of moving from on-prem to SaaS deployments and from perpetual licensing to subscription models

We’ll also be hearing directly from Jolanta Kaminskaite, managing partner at IPnovus Law and Shantanu Sahay, partner at Anand & Anand in India on the impact of COVID and the global pandemic on their regional approaches to converting unlicensed software usage into new license revenue.

Be sure to register for our roundtable on the future of software piracy and license compliance so you won’t miss the discussion and your chance to share your questions with our expert panel. Share your thoughts on the topic in the comment section and we may include them in our conversation.
