    Software Licence Compliance Audits | Kangs Regulatory and Licensing Solicitors

    Software companies are increasingly enforcing compliance with the terms and conditions of their licence agreements by conducting Software Licence Compliance, (SLC), Audits.

    What Is A SLC Audit? | Kangs Regulatory Advisors

    Upon the purchase of computer software, invariably a Licence Agreement is completed which regulates in detail the manner in which it is to be used and the rights of enforcement reserved by the Vendor.

    Invariably, the Vendor Company will retain the power to audit, either itself or through its agent, any business or person entitled to handle the software by attending the appropriate premises in order to conduct such audit.

    The auditors will easily detect any activity which is not in compliance with the terms of the Licence Agreement.

    What Are The Consequences For Breach ? | Kangs Advisory Team

    1. There are a number of potential financial penalties available including:
    • the withdrawal of any agreed discount
    • liability for the cost of back-dated support & maintenance payments
    • liability for the cost of the audit
    • any legal fees incurred (especially if the matter is escalated to court)
    1. There are circumstances where deliberate breaches and abuse of the software can amount to a criminal offence.
