Learn more about Genuine Autodesk software, software piracy and how to protect yourself.

Genuine Autodesk software is legally licensed software purchased from Autodesk or an Autodesk Authorized Reseller. It’s free from vulnerabilities that may be found in nonvalid software.

Software piracy is the illegal copying, distribution or use of software. It occurs when one or more of the following happen:

  • Software is modified or hacked
  • Keys or accounts are copied or sold
  • Usage does not comply with the licensing terms of use
  • Software is purchased from an unauthorised reseller

Using nonvalid software poses a risk for individuals and organisations. Nonvalid software may have been modified and/or may include malicious code, leading to issues, including:

  • Risk of exposure to malware that can destroy or compromise your work.
  • Risk of the software functioning incorrectly or failing.
  • Limited access to customer support, upgrades and technical documentation.

These issues may create safety, quality or integrity issues in your designs, processes, products or structures. Using nonvalid software also puts you and your company at risk of copyright infringement or other potential legal claims.

Using nonvalid software is an act of copyright infringement, which may result in both civil and criminal penalties. Further, Autodesk’s Terms of Use (US site) requires all customers to use Autodesk software in compliance with all applicable laws and further prohibits any act of unauthorised use, access or reproduction.

There are several ways to check the status of your software. Implementing Software Asset Management practices will provide insight into which licences are being used correctly. In addition, Autodesk may detect and send notifications to users of nonvalid software and, in accordance with Autodesk’s Terms of Use (US site), may also conduct licensing reviews.

You can protect you and your company from piracy-related issues by only subscribing to Genuine Autodesk software directly through or through an Autodesk Authorized Reseller. If you need assistance, you can also speak with an Autodesk salesperson.

Also, never download and install Autodesk software through torrent websites, never download and install crack software and never activate your Autodesk software using key generators or keygens.

No. Autodesk’s education and student licences cannot be used for commercial, professional, commercial training or other for-profit purposes. If you are using education or student versions for commercial purposes, visit to subscribe to the Autodesk product that’s right for you.

The Autodesk Genuine Service is designed to remain in place as long as Autodesk products are detected on a device. Once Autodesk products are no longer detected, the service will be disabled automatically.
