U.S. Navy Returns Fire In $600m Piracy Lawsuit

I am not sure how the government thought that buying 38 software licenses allowed it to install the software in question on 558,000 computers but that's exactly what they did. Apparently, according to government math, 38 is the same as 558,000, so everything is on the up and up. Obviously.

In July, the U.S. military was accused of unlawfully installing 'pirated' copies of 3D virtual reality software onto hundreds of thousands of computers. Facing billions in potential damages, the Navy has now returned fire, accepting it installed the software 558,000 times without paying but denying it did so without permission.
