commercial usage loaded to numerous machines

 

 

thats who they are really after

 

 

not the one man sole traders or ltd companies.

mass piracy.

 

 

all they've done is been given the database of everyones email that downloaded a copy

they fire off a few feee emails and see if they bite

then fire off a few letters.

 

 

they don't know who the people are till they dig.

So even the fact that the actual software company keeps emailing me aswell it's still makes no difference then ?

Well , the fact that the owners of the software are emailing me aswell as hiring the solicitor to persue me.

 

It means that its not a sc4m .

 

Whether this means that they can actually do me is another matter.

 

From what iv read on the ACS law thing is it just seemed to be a solicitor sending out letters to try and trick people into paying for movies they had downloaded ?

 

These Solidworks cases seem to be targeting people who may actually have had an illigal copy of their software . And they are contacted by the company them selves ( albeit to try and sell them a copy of their software .

 

It just seems different to me .

Nope its them from the head office in Europe , then you get the local reseller phoning and e mailing aswell . I know them because we get our works software from them . Solid Solutions

Ignore the reseller. its nothing to do with them. Its likely the developer prob puts pressure on resellers saying " we cant chase them but we think you can. Chase them for us, or we will retract your reseller contract.

Sorry for not replying sooner.

 

I too received the letter recorded delivery. In it was all their "evidence" and when I pushed them to comply with Pre-Action protocol, they said it did (it didn't because they didn't declare the value of the infringement that they would claim).

 

I replied stating categorically that I would not be buying a license because I was not using the software commercially and couldn't afford it anyway and they had no evidence to the contrary. I also told them I was blocking all their email addresses (I have). I also said "I suggest in you do not cite a 192.168.x.x non-routable IP address as evidence in future".

 

I haven't heard anything since.

Oh yes - he tried to suggest that as my email had come from the same IP address as they had logged, it proved it was me - that IP was 192.168.8.1 I think which is common to all the ADSL routers like mine (pretty generic ISP-supplied one!)

 

In a former life I was a roving engineer for a network solutions provider setting up firewalls 'n' stuff. Didn't tell him that of course.

Yep either ignore them and block their e mails and phone numbers . Or send of an email to one of them stating your innocence and stating that they have no proof and are wasting their time .

They will get heavy and try and scare you . Be polite and tell em to do one

They will follow the same system of threats until you will receive a letter .

That means they don t have an more ammo and they go away

DO NOT GIVE THEM AN EMAIL!!

gives them a cheap way to harass you

letters only make them spend money on postage

ok cheers.

can i check how they originally worded their first email to you all, did it mention invalid serial, my case may be different as i am using a valid serial just not registered in my name, its someone elses.

 

this is the wording on their email.

 

"Our clients have discovered that your company has been using SOLIDWORKS, without the necessary licenses, that is to say your usage has occurred without the consent of our clients or any of their authorised resellers."

a co..?. Not sure what you mean?

Iam just trying to work out what info they have about me,

whether they are just fishing from info on my website,

or if someone has informed them about my license situation.

 

 

If the wording is the same then iam hoping they are just fishing and stabbing in the dark.

 

iam a one man Ltd co if thats what u mean

 

I contract out to companies and use their software at their premises

but also have a copy which i use for personal use,

 

 

but i always thought it wouldnt be a problem as the serial is genuine but registered to a nother not the cracked copy.

 

my assumption is they have seen on my company website

i have used it in the past and are fishing.

 

 

My company website is used to attract jobs direct instead of relying on agencies and them taking a cut.

Unless they contact you by mail with proof, ignore them. And IF ( big if) they provide proof, you still do not reply, but come here for more advice.

they've done the same as ACS Law did .

they written to every website owner or email AD they can find using the software that dint appear to be licenced.

threatening all sorts

which at the end of the day doesn't really apply to one man bands

but more over corporate use

lots of machine , corp fraud.

 

 

don't respond.
