Enforcement Programs

The Software & Information Industry Association's Intellectual Property Protection Division conducts a comprehensive, industry-wide campaign to protect and enforce the intellectual property rights of participating software and content companies.  The pro-active campaign is premised on the notion that one must balance enforcement with education in order to be effective.

 

Corporate Anti-Piracy Program
SIIA pursues cases of software and content piracy taking place within an organization. This occurs when software has been installed or content is being copied and/or distributed by an organization without the proper license from the publisher. Those who report piracy taking place within an organization to SIIA may be eligible for a reward of up to $1 million.
