If you have been notified regarding the use of unauthorized copies of Trimble software, we encourage you to audit your computers and work in good faith with Trimble’s authorized collaborators. Trimble authorized collaborators are encouraged to understand all situations, and come to a mutually beneficial arrangement as soon as possible. Some possible collaborators are listed below.

The above list is not a complete list. If you have been contacted by someone purporting to be authorized by Trimble and would like to confirm, submit this inquiry form.

  • Frequently Asked Questions


‘Software piracy’ is the theft of the intellectual rights of software companies.

‘License compliance’ is using software according to the Terms and Conditions of the Software License Agreement.

Use of unauthorized software could lead to various business consequences such as viruses and other malware, the loss of sensitive business data, lack of Trimble technical support, wasted time and effort, and reputational damage. In addition, there may be civil and/or criminal legal penalties.

Using subcontractors who violate license compliance is also a risk. If such a subcontractor becomes subject to a raid where all computers are sealed, all project data can be lost.

If you suspect use of illegal software you can report the misuse to us via this web form. By reporting misuse you are helping to protect legitimate businesses and continued top quality development of the product.



Where can authorized licenses to Trimble software be purchased?
Only Trimble and its authorized resellers may sell Trimble software.

Once a license to Trimble software is purchased, is it owned by the customer?
No. Software is licensed and not sold. Customers do not obtain title to any intellectual property rights in the software. All such ownership rights in the software remain with Trimble. Instead, customers obtain a limited license to use the software in accordance with any applicable usage limitations. If the software is delivered physically (e.g., disk, dongle, CD, etc.), then the customer may own that physical copy, but not the software itself.

Can a license to Trimble software be transferred or sold?
No. Customers are not permitted to sell, loan, or transfer a Trimble software license to any other person or company without the prior written consent from Trimble. Trimble may condition such consent on payment of a transfer fee.

What should I do if I suspect I am using an unauthorized copy of Trimble software?
