exocad has announced that it has settled a software piracy and Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) infringement lawsuit with one of its former customers, a USA-based dental lab.
The USA-based customer had purchased a 'cracked' version of exocad DentalCAD software from a website offering counterfeit exocad software, which came to the attention of exocad's License Compliance team.
As part of the settlement, the former customer will pay exocad the sum of US $220,000.00 in damages.
"We closely monitor usage of pirated exocad software," said Tillmann Steinbrecher, CEO of exocad. "To enforce our zero-tolerance policy, we are starting to take legal action. We strongly suggest that all users of pirated exocad software replace their installations with legitimate licenses, instead of putting their businesses at risk."
