US agrees to pay $50m after 'piracy' of software

The US government has agreed to pay $50m (£31m) after it was said to
have pirated "thousands" of copies of military software.

Apptricity, based in Texas, has provided logistics programs to the army
since 2004.

The company said it had discovered last year the software had been
installed on many more machines than had been licensed.

The Department of Justice has not commented on the settlement.

The Dallas Morning News reported a DoJ spokeswoman had confirmed the
agreement, but would not give more details.

Apptricity's software allows the military to track the movements of
soldiers as well as key supplies.

It has also been used during relief efforts, most notably in Haiti
following the 2010 earthquake.

According to court documents filed in 2012, the deal with the military
meant up to 500 named users could access the software.
Presentation revelation

Apptricity later estimated that 9,000 users were accessing the program,
in addition to the 500 that had been paid for.

The unauthorised copying only came to light after a US Army official
mentioned "thousands" of devices running the software during a
presentation on technology.

Apptricity called for $224m (£137m) to be paid to cover costs.

The settlement of $50m falls some way short - but in a statement the
company said Apptricity would spend the sum on expanding the company.

"Apptricity is now incredibly energised to use the settlement resolution
as a catalyst for aggressive investment in our team, our solutions and
our untapped market opportunities," said Randy Lieberman, Apptricity's
chief financial officer.

In recent years, the US government has stepped up efforts to combat
piracy, announcing a wide-ranging strategy for clamping down in 2010.

"Piracy is theft, clean and simple," remarked vice-president Joe Biden
at the time.
