Software piracy is a major global concern for commercial software developers, retailers and distributors worldwide. Software pirates not only survive by cheating software suppliers of their rightful income but also weaken the competitive strength of licensed customers.
Tekla is very firmly committed to ensuring the protection of the users' rights, Tekla's rights, and the rights of other software suppliers, by allocating considerable resources towards global anti-piracy campaigns and to tracking down pirates and other parties involved in making or distributing illegal copies of Tekla software. Ensuring that those parties are prosecuted to the full extent of the law is in everybody's best interest. For this reason, piracy of Tekla products is rare, but it does happen.
Software piracy is illegal in all countries and jurisdictions in which Tekla products are sold or distributed, and it is also illegal to use any unauthorised copy of Tekla software. Significant civil and criminal penalties may apply to any party who makes or deals with unauthorised copies of Tekla software, or uses the output (drawings, models etc.) made with illegal copies.
If you discover any such unauthorised copy of our software, or are aware of any parties you think may be involved in making or dealing with any unauthorised copies of our software, you can assist us to stamp it out by sending a report here:
