SIMONA LAVAGNINI TO SPEAK AT A WEBINAR ORGANIZED BY MICROSOFT ON THE RISKS OF COUNTERFEIT SOFTWARE
On June 27, at 11 a.m., Ms. Simona Lavagnini will speak at a webinar organized by Microsoft on the enhancement of the software assets of the company, the legal consequences of the sale and use of counterfeit software, and the ways to manage IT contracts and software licences.
Software has now become an important resource for all companies which often find themselves having to manage a certain number of IT contracts dealing with software development, outsourcing or use licenses. It is essential for companies to know about the features of such contracts, the risks connected to them and the best ways to control them with a view to optimizing use of resources and avoid incurring in negative consequences.
Ms. Simona Lavagnini, partner at LGV Avvocati, will provide a comprehensive view of rights over software, also dealing with the civil, criminal and administrative consequences connected to use of unlicensed software or non-compliant licences. She will examine the cases in which protection is provided by copyright law and the infringements and remedies available in the field of unfair competition and consumer protection law. Ms. Lavagnini will also give some important advice for identifying unauthentic software and avoiding the risks associated with use of such software.
Mr. Paolo Valcher of the Software Asset Management and Copyright Protection division and Mr. Marco Cattaneo, Product Marketing Manager Windows Commercial, both from Microsoft Italia, will also be speaking at the webinar.
