Reviews - What do customers think about Modern Pirates: Protect Your Company from the Software Police?
Excellent Book May 3, 2007
This is an excellent book and a must read not only for IT professionals but for anyone in any organization or home that has software, graphics, sound files,shareware, freeware etc.
Very few people understand the potential liability they face when any one of these is not properly licensed or it infringes on any copyright. The potential fines for illegal use of any software are staggering and frightening.
I have taken Al's on-line course also and that is incredible! Every IT professional and senior executive out there should take this course. Can you really afford not to?
If you conatct Al he will show you case after case of huge fines levied against individuals and corporations. The software police are very active and you could be next!
Modern Pirates May 3, 2006
This book is a MUST read for anyone who owns a computer. Even more so for those responsible for or managing their companies technology portfolio. This book is the first thing I've seen on the market that really addresses Technology Portfolio (Asset) Management in terms of what you need and should be doing.
Fun Read on a Most Serious Topic Apr 28, 2006
This is the first publication I've seen outside of some certification courses that tells it as it is while offering important insights and solutions. Modern Pirates opens portholes of little known insights into Software Asset Management and associated fields. As I read it my mind kept asking, "Who are the real pirates?" You won't fall to sleep reading this one. It's an unusually fun read on a most serious topic.
MODERN PIRATES is a must read for those who know little or nothing, or have misconceptions, about the field of Software Asset Management. It is also a very handy review and reference for us veterans, although I did learn interesting new things. It would make a thoughtful gift for the unbelieving boss.
Modern Pirates is a great I.T. Asset Management Tool Apr 12, 2006
Modern Pirates is probably the only book being published today that deals with I.T. Asset Management, and it consequences, and is a must read, not only for I.T. Asset Managers, but for any level of management, from the CEO on down of any company. Real life examples of what can happen to any size company should run a chill up the spine of any manager. I found this book to be great and very informative reading as written by an extremely knowledgeable person in the I.T. Asset Management field. I highly recommend this for all to read. In this day and age of software compliance actions costing companies millions, you can't afford to not read this.
