Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)

HR 3261, or the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is currently being considered in the US congress.  Like most legislation that deals with the Internet, it comes with a certain amount of controversy.

At its heart, the bill is designed to help prevent the illegal distribution of intellectual property – music, movies, software, books, periodicals and so on.  Even today the notion of copying media is still somehow not perceived as stealing by many people.  While walking in to a bookstore or music store and taking something without paying for it is clearly understood to be stealing, many people don’t consider the download of the same material to be illegal.  It is.  Regardless of the legality – when people stop to think about it – they realize that it is morally wrong.

In Licensing, The Best Defense is a Great Offense

Instead, we got to see teams with ordinary starting pitching somehow make it to the championship games.

Focusing on offense over defense seems to be the trend lately in the software world too.

Because the Most Secure Dongle is the One You Don’t Even See

Introducing Sentinel HASP HL MaxMicro, the smallest hardware-based protection key that once installed, protrudes only by 7.6mm/0.3’’ making it virtually invisible.  It contains the same robust protection as our traditional Sentinel HASP key; however dramatically decreases the possibility of an accidental or deliberate break.

Just think of all the ways your organization can benefit from the new MaxMicro!

  • Safe in environments where products are fully exposed 
  • Perfect protection for notebooks, embedded systems and medical devices, where key is stationary
  • Securely permits remote updates
