Adobe recently audited the university to verify their products were properly obtained. This process highlighted the need to document ownership of software. Information Technology recommends departments file receipts for all software — including applications purchased by employees — because the department is responsible for every installation on university equipment. IT also recommends individual users keep receipts for their personal purchases and register software to document ownership.
