Another day, another BSA fine

The BSA just found an engineering design company to be non-compliant with their Autodesk software –  resulting in a payout of over $50,000.

The company, Project Options Ltd, was outed by a “confidential online report” that was submitted through the BSA website.  Likely a disgruntled employee or perhaps even a competitor.

The fines, which added up to over $50,000 included fees for new licensing they had to purchase. The company has said before being discovered by the BSA, software licensing was not a priority. Not only did they find a licensing gap – the audit by the BSA discovered that some of Project Options’ contractors had downloaded and used unlicensed software – woops! 

The good news? Software licensing is NOW a priority for this company – and hopefully others will learn from their mistakes!
