Second, companies use Autodesk products but not in accordance with its license number, “he said.

For example, says Turia, for example, the company purchased a license for 5 computers, but were used for 20 units of computers. “This illegal act we call the under-license,” ujap Turia.

According to the Turia, the consumer companies are often under-licensing action. “It means they are doing a lot of duplication of Autodesk software,” he said.

Turia says, Autodesk can find out this illegal action through the activation of which is online. “This could diketaui via serial number requested in each activation of a software process,” Turia said.

“Pirated software usually has a sequential serial number or numbers pretty, like 1234567. While the original software is always random, not sequential, “Turia said.
