Unlicensed Software Costs On The Rise As Uk Small Businesses Pay Out More Than £900,000 In 2016 | EasySAM

Sarah Coombes, Managing Director, BSA EMEA said: "It's concerning to see that unlicensed software is still costing small businesses hundreds of thousands of pounds every year.
Despite the rate of unlicensed software in the UK dropping, it's clear some businesses are continuing to ignore copyright law, leading to greater settlements and legalisation costs. "We encourage all businesses to ensure they have stringent software asset management (SAM) practices in place. Implementing even baseline SAM tools and processes, such as regular inventories and having a software use policy for employees, can have a huge benefit. Knowing what software you're using and what you're licensed to use could even lead to cost savings, by helping to identify over-licensed software. Anyone aware of a business using unlicensed software can send an anonymous report to BSA, or go on the record for a potential reward," Coombes continued.
