All of this must be done while facing substantial hurdles. According to Business Software Alliance and IDC research conducted in 2013, more than $62.7 billion worth of software was stolen.

Software Monetization Solutions from Flexera Software
Intelligent device manufacturers are increasingly battling commoditization and the risk of grey market abuse of their core hardware products and many are turning to embedded software as a means to differentiate and protect their offerings in a highly competitive market. Unfortunately, too many fail to see the strategic impact of software and, therefore, fail to deploy a strategic solution for Software Monetization.
Software licensing and activation, electronic software distribution and delivery, software compliance and entitlement management are usually not top of mind when you're working on your latest product breakthrough. But, increasingly, failure to implement a strategic solution for Software Monetization is placing software vendor revenues at risk.
