CJCH Solicitors - Re Solidworks copyright threat

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have come across all of the other threads on this subject (of which there are a few!). I am making a separate thread about mine as I do not want to hijack another thread as my situation is a little different. 

 

I recieved a letter earlier in the week at work from CJCH solicitors (copy of letter attached).

I have not recieved any emails previously to receiving it either like in the other cases I read about.

I do have an illegal copy solidworks on the computer which I got about 4 weeks ago to learn how to use it for my own personal use.

We dont have any use for solidworks at work either.

 

Like in the other cases I have read about on the forum the letters and emails state ip addresses sometimes or some sort of evidence which mine doesn't.

Also it might be worth mentoning that the machine that solidworks is installed on is on a vpn all the time.

 

Not going to lie, this has really put the fear of god into me. 

I am not sleeping much and is pretty much all I'm thinking about at the moment.

 

Amy advice will be HUGELY appreciated!

you mean its on a works pc not your home pc and do you own the company?

being behind a vpn doesn't hide you, it simply prevents data being intercepted by means you do not authorise or people you don't give authority to do so too.

as such if you'd read the instructions on the software and T&C's of use, , it clearly states it will harvest, as does autocad etc, information upon installation and continued usage unless you change the relevant settings.

 

the bottom line

as with all threads that you say you have read

there is little they can do.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

Ok thanks for clearing that up for me and thanks for the fast reply.

 

Yes it is a works computer (which other people have access too) and yes it is my company.

 

Should I reply to the letter or just ignore it? It was a signed delivery letter so they know I've recieved it. 

 

Also did my file upload ok? I cant seem to open it.

Yes the upload was fine. Ignore the letter – but come back here if you hear anything more from them. You should probably be a bit more careful about using this kind of software.
