The Federation Against Software Theft (Fast) wants to broaden its membership by signing up small independent software companies.
The organisation, which specialises in the enforcement of software licences and copyrights, will offer small to medium-sized organisations a reduced membership fee.
Fast says that last year it retrieved some £1.5 million in unlicensed software from medium to large organisations.
And it claims it has realised there is a vast, unsupported network of smaller vendors that are not in a position to negotiate income recovery as a result of the misuse of their software.
"We feel this figure [£1.5 million] will increase as we go forward and we expect it to increase significantly this year as we cover more ground," commented Paul Brennan, Fast general counsel.
The organisation's standard annual membership fee is £600. Small companies wanting to sign up will be reviewed by Fast, their circumstances taken into account, and discounts offered as Fast sees fit.
"Traditionally larger companies have had problems with the governance of desktop software," Brennan explained.
"Now that market is changing and many smaller companies are involved. These smaller companies don't usually have a voice and can't afford to bring an action."
Fast believes its involvement with smaller organisations will only enhance its relationship with channel resellers and distributors.
"There's no animosity with the channel," Brennan stated. "I think it helps having a name [such as Fast] because when we write to these people we tend to get their attention."
Brennan's main desire for the year ahead is to increase the number of software publishers it has as members. With 100 already signed up, Brennan is confident Fast can add at least 50 to that list by the end of the year.
