n>Nothing hidden in the softwarenArrayPiracy Detection and Reporting Security Software (PDRSS) exists to identify instances of pirated software in use and provides the identity and location of organizations utilizing the pirated software to the software providers. Identification of pirated software allows the software providers to take legal action against intentional software piracy, notify unwitting organizations of the illegal use of the software (and the potential malware problems that can accompany pirated software), and sell valid software licenses in the place of the previously illegally obtained software programs to recoup lost sales. Plaintiff identifies instances of pirated software in use through PDRSS which, along with the license verification technology, is a component of the Security Mechanism.nAccording to the above, it is actually hidden somewhere inside, and sends out private data used for identification. It can be activated whenever you actually have enough licenses to cover all the users work 24h, or not, just when you made a mistake and installed it from a 3rd party download location. There are tons of download locations including large organizations indexed in Google and Duckduckgo; and no one reacts. So, even when the license actually covers an action of using the number of instances, and the user may even have more licenses than needed, the lawyers from ANSYS enforcement do not care and approach organizations for rans justification basing on contact with the distribution from unknown source. A practice that takes a lot of money for confronting in the court from the defendant.nSo the atmosphere around ANSYS today is changing from learn, love and buy to avoid if you can. Anyway, just in the case, avoid any 3rd party distribution storage, where download is not registered in ANSYS logs.nnP.S. I've seen these videos on Youtube during last decade, and neither Ansys nor Google ever reacted whenever I made a report. nThe proof from 2017:
