Christopher Barnett, Scott & Scott, LLP attorney, views the recent appointment of Victoria Espinel as President of BSA | The Software Alliance as a good indicator that the BSA has no intention of slowing down its license-enforcement initiatives. Companies should be proactive in assessing their licensing position for all BSA-member software products. Compliance costs before a company receives a BSA audit-notice will always be significantly lower than the costs associated with resolving an audit.
