Wolfram Mathematica Software Copyright Infringement Lawyer

Wolfram Mathematica is a software company that has made significant contributions to the world of computing with its various software products powered by the company’s own programming language, Wolfram Language. Some of Wolfram Mathematica’s products include cloud products, computer notebooks, software engines, tools for finance, and system modeling. 

Wolfram Mathematica relies on copyrights to protect its intellectual property and ensure it is properly compensated when people use its software. Without this protection, consumers would be able to use copies of the software without paying Wolfram Mathematica. Therefore, the company has significant incentive to take legal action against those who the company believes are infringing on its copyrights.

Understanding Wolfram Mathematica Software Copyright Infringement

If you use Wolfram Mathematica’s software, you should understand the basics of copyright infringement to avoid getting into a copyright infringement case, and how copyright laws apply to the context of software.

Definition of Software Copyright Infringement

Generally, copyright infringement is when an individual, company, or some other entity uses or produces copyrighted content or material without the permission of the owner of the copyright. When it comes to software, the related copyright is based on the underlying programming code. Once the programming code is written, it automatically becomes the owned by the copyright holder.

Therefore, any individual, company, or entity that copies the copyrighted software code and sells it as their own is infringing on the copyright. Also, if the copyrighted software code – or even part of it – is utilized as a part of another software product’s code, it is considered copyright infringement. It is also a copyright violation to use Wolfram Mathematica’s software without a proper license.

How Copyright Law Protects Wolfram Mathematica Software 

Copyright laws provide Wolfram Mathematica Software with the option of taking legal action against any individual or entity which the company believes has infringed upon its copyright. This can include sending a cease-and-desist letter, which is essentially a threat to file a lawsuit in court if the alleged infringer does not stop illegally using, copying, selling, and.or distributing the company’s copyrighted software code. If the alleged infringer does not respond to the letter, the company will take them to court.

Consequences of Copyright Infringement 

Copyright infringement poses significant consequences. These consequences differ depending on whether the infringement was willful, meaning intentionally with knowledge of the patent and usually for financial gain, or innocent infringement if the party doesn’t realize that the work is copyrighted: 

If a party is found to have willfully infringed a copyrighted work, they may have to pay a civil penalty per statute of up to $150,000 per work, and possible jail time up to 5 years.

Innocent infringement generally has reduced civil penalties, with the minimum penalty being $200 per work infringed.
