Software Publisher Class Action Lawsuits – Support and Maintenance Fraud

Our law firm handles software audits and licensing disputes with many different vendors.  Sometimes, these companies turn into “copyright bullies” and forget that their maintenance and support (and sometimes even their software) does not work like they claim it does, or as they advertise.  In these cases, instead of letting the publishers and their representatives bully your company into a large settlement, perhaps it is time to turn the table on them, and if they threaten to sue you (which happens quite frequently), you can threaten to sue them back – class action style – through our law firm, to hold them accountable for their fraud, misrepresentation or breach of contract.

Of course this will depend on the specific facts of your case.  However, recently I dealt with a company that was demanding an exorbitant amount to settle a disputed software licensing matter.  They threatened my Client with litigation. Meanwhile, I have links showing all the complaints this company has had over the years dealing with its bogus support and maintenance.  Not surprisingly, the software company representative never seems to bring this up or want to discuss this.  But as I see it, they should not be so eager to file copyright infringement lawsuits when they have their own dirty laundry (“unclean hands”).

Here is a sample email I drafted on this point (for reference purposes only):


Make sure to tell your legal team there will be a class action lawsuit coming their way, filed be me, against them regarding the breach of service agreement.  If you want to litigate, we are happy to oblige as the public certainly needs to be informed and protected here.  It seems there are false representations made to a lot of people and we will address that issue head on.  Here is a link dealing with the fraud, which I am sure you know about but choose to keep quiet:

I will await your summons and complaint, and your legal team can expect one in return.  If you change your mind and want to get reasonable on the offer, let me know.  Again, we have admitted no fault in this matter and hereby reserve all legal rights.


In general, a party should not be seeking to file lawsuits where they have “unclean hands” and if you feel you have a case ripe for a copyright class action case, call us to discuss at the number above or below.
