TEUFEN, Switzerland, Sep 9, 2020 – NUM AG is pleased to announce that it is now officially in possession of the copyright of NUMROTO software in China.
This will make it easier for us and our lawyers to take action against the use and sale of unlicensed versions of NUMROTO worldwide and to hold guilty users and providers accountable accordingly.
How do you recognize an illegal version of NUMROTO?
If you have a machine that does not have a NUM CNC control and still uses NUMROTO then it is for sure an unlicensed and therefore illegal version of NUMROTO.
If the machine is controlled by a NUM CNC then the following details may indicate an illegal copy of NUMROTO:
- Keyfile number (license file number) with the numbers 999 at the end (for example 12002999.nky or 12002999.nk4, where only the last 3 numbers “999” are relevant).
- Availability of all options according to the option list displayed with the machine data. Machines rarely need all options and consequently hardly any such configurations have ever been ordered.
- A USB hardlock (dongle), where no red LED is visible.
- If the machine was produced by a manufacturer who is not listed as an official partner
If you want to have the authenticity of NUMROTO checked, just send us your license file (keyfile) with the extension .nky or .nk4, together with the name of your company.
If you find that you are using an illegal version of NUMROTO, please contact us. We will try to find a solution to the problem together.
Our lawyers and we are convinced that in the coming months we will be able to support the legal users of NUMROTO with appropriate measures.
