Reporting piracy

Siemens Digital Industries Software is committed to helping you and your organization understand the importance of software licensing and the risks of using unlicensed software.

Software piracy is stealing

Software development involves a team effort that includes the creative ideas and talents of programmers, writers, and graphic artists. Like most creative works such as books, movies, and films, computer software is copyrighted material protected by the laws of each country in which it is licensed and international treaties.

Software piracy is stealing. If you or your company are caught using software without a license, you could be held liable under both civil and criminal law, with severe financial repercussions and penalties together with reputational damage. In addition, users of pirated or counterfeit software could be exposed to software viruses and malware leading to financial loss and other consequences.

In addition to protecting our intellectual property, our anti-piracy work promotes fair competition by supporting customers who are legal and licensed users of Siemens software.
