Carrying out a successful software compliance raid can sometimes require mountains of paperwork and an understanding on how to navigate the legal waters of each region.
Although the process for planning and completing raids is an arduous one, the results are significant. Being onsite increases the chances of finding actual evidence of misuse monumentally. It eliminates the ability to deny illegal use, ignoring requests for discussion. Because it’s a third party carrying out the raid, it has less potential for a negative effect on the relationship with the direct or channel sales representative. A recent raid by Software Compliance Group, of a Vietnamese apparel maker, netted a multi-million dollar opportunity for the software company they represented.
