10 Reasons Why It’s Important to be a Responsible Software User

10. Copying software undermines policies against taking company property.

9. Proper software management saves time and money, and makes a computer user more productive.

8. Unlicensed software is one of the prime sources of computer viruses that can destroy valuable data.

7. Unlicensed software is more likely to fail, leaving computers and their information useless.

6. You can expect no warranties or support for unlicensed software and you won’t have access to inexpensive upgrades.

5. The cost of software piracy settlements usually far outweighs the cost incurred by a company using legitimate software.

4. In some circumstances, you leave your organization vulnerable to raids and seizures of evidence, including computers, disk drives, and other equipment.

3. In 2002, BSA investigated more than 500 companies. In the past 11 years, BSA has recovered nearly $90 million in penalties from software pirates.

2. Software piracy can lead to stiff fines of up to $150,000 per copyright infringed and civil and criminal prosecutions.

And the number one reason you should ensure that the software you are using is compliant with U.S. Software Copyright Laws?

Software Piracy Is Theft!

Hangouts can now be enabled for domains using Google Apps Vault

Customers using Google Apps Vault can now activate the new Hangouts in the Admin console. An amendment has been added in the Admin console that allows you to activate the new Hangouts on acceptance of the terms. This amendment outlines the change in Vault functionality that will exist until we complete the roll out of full compatibility. You will still have eDiscovery and legal-hold capabilities for your on-the-record/history-on chats, but the retention-purge function will not be available. To agree to the amendment, please log into the Admin console, go to Apps, click on Talk/Hangouts, go to Advanced Settings, and click “Enable Hangouts”.

How to opt in

If you’d like to opt in after reviewing all the considerations above, follow two steps so that your users can get started with Hangouts:

1. opt in in the Admin console and    2. inform your users.

To opt in to the new Hangouts for everyone or for users in specific organizational units, do the following:

  1. Sign in to the Admin console.
  2. Find the Talk settings:

      (Which Admin console do I have?)
  3. In the Organizations section near the top of the page, select your domain or the organizational unit for which you want to configure settings.
  4. In the Google+ Hangouts section, select Enable the new Hangouts for this organizational unit.
  5. If you have Google Apps Vault, a dialog containing the Vault-Hangouts amendment appears. Read the amendment. Click I Accept if you accept the terms.
  6. In another dialog, read all the conditions and issues related to enabling the new Hangouts. If you’d like to continue, check the I have read and acknowledged the above box. Then click Continue to enable.

How to opt out after opting in

  1. Sign in to the Admin console.
  2. Find the Talk settings:
    • In the classic Admin console, click Settings > Talk.

Share Docs, Slides and Drawings with people who do not have a Google Account

We are making it easier to share Docs, Slides and Drawings with people who don’t have a Google Account. As a result of this change, files shared outside your domain to an email address not linked to an existing Google Account can be viewed without having to sign in or create a new Google Account. If a file is shared with edit or comment permissions, the recieving user must still sign in with a Google Account in order to edit or comment on that file.

When a user directly shares with individuals who do not have Google Accounts, those recipients will be able to view the file without signing in. Because no sign in is required, anyone may view the file with this sharing link until the person who the file was explicitly shared with creates a Google Account and expends the invitation. Once the person creates a Google Account two things happen: (1) the sharing link will no longer work for new users to access the file and the sharing dialog will indicate that the invitation has been used; (2) any user who accessed the file using the sharing link while it was open and signed in using their Google Account will be added to the sharing access list for that file and will continue to have access. Users with permissions to change sharing settings can revoke this access if desired.

Google Apps admins can prevent this behavior by disabling sharing outside the domain to people who are not using a Google Account via a setting in the Admin console.
