Ansys, Inc. accuses defendants of copyright infringement by using software such as BitTorrent and the internet to obtain a cracked version of their software, which circumvents the anti-piracy feature, allowing use without a license key. This software includes products such as Ansys Electronics Enterprise (including Ansys Electronics Premium Maxwell, Ansys Electronics Premium SIwave, and Ansys Electronics Premium HFSS), Ansys Fluent, and Ansys Mechanical.
The Ansys, Inc. lawsuit is one of many copyright infringement cases we see, which are sometimes called “copyright troll” lawsuits or BitTorrent lawsuits. BitTorrent is a common software people use to illegally download items online.
Many cases can be resolved through an attorney by negotiation for a small business or individual license fee. Most of these lawsuits are filed in Texas federal court, but notices can be sent all over the country. We can represent clients nationwide as this is a federal case.
