Several months later, they get a letter from Siemens legal department saying they owe them about $40 K (two seats of NX + a year of maintenance for each) to avoid legal action. They ended up agreeing on purchasing one seat + ongoing mantenance (a pretty fair resoloution). No one really figured out how they found out, whether it was a plant, or a file got back around from a vendor, etc.
    Another incident was a friend works for a medium sized tech company, they use ProE, with their PDM system (quite a few seats). One of their vendors in China was using pirated ProE, the files were flagged in their PDM system and a bunch of lawyers descended on the company.
    So, if people are using stolen software, better not be sending files to anyone.
    NX sends usage/licensing data back to Siemens if you're connected to the internet.

    Yes, you can get a node locked license, and then tie that license to a USB dongle. NX is used in lots of environments where a net connection is not allowed.

    If you know anything about computing, that's trivial to stop.
