What is pirated software?
Pirated software is usually traded over the internet for much less than the cost of genuine software. If the price of software is too good to be true, the chances are it is illegal or unlicensed.
Beware of software sold on eBay and Facebook. These sellers take your money and provide extremely outdated and unsupported software.
How to ensure that my software is a genuine Wilcom product
EmbroideryStudio e4.5 and below: Genuine Wilcom software will require a dongle to use the software. All Wilcom dongles are supplied an Access Code to activate them. These Access Codes are issued by Wilcom International Pty Ltd and validate a legal dongle.
EmbroideryStudio Digital Edition: EmbroideryStudio Digital Edition will require either a hardware dongle, or a valid digital licence code. You can contact Wilcom to verify if the dongle/licence is legitimate and active before purchasing.
Wilcom takes piracy seriously and will instigate legal action against those found to be possessing, using or distributing illegal copies of Wilcom software.
Individuals involved in these activities may be subject to criminal charges resulting in imprisonment, imposition of large fines and civil damages, which could amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
