Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST), a leading provider of technology-based language learning solutions, is strengthening its efforts to combat software piracy and fraud during the online retail holiday season, which experts say will be the largest by far in history.
Last month it was announced that Rosetta Stone entered into a settlement agreement with Google by which both companies agreed to collaborate to combat online ads for counterfeit goods and prevent the misuse and abuse of trademarks on the Internet.
“The Google settlement is a significant victory for consumer protection, and goes a long way toward advancing our goals around software piracy and fraud,” said Michael Wu, general counsel of Rosetta Stone. “At Rosetta Stone, we want to protect our customers as much as possible, and we’ll continue to work hard to help lend a peace-of-mind during this busy online shopping season.”
As part of Rosetta Stone’s continuing effort to enforce its rights under intellectual property laws, the company administers an active anti-piracy enforcement program partnering with law enforcement to stop IP theft. Rosetta Stone recognizes the following law enforcement partners for taking action to protect consumers and safeguard the nation's economic security against those who seek to profit illegally from the company’s creativity, innovation and hard work:
- U.S. ICE Cyber Crimes Center (C3), Homeland Security Investigations in Fairfax, Virginia
- U.S. Homeland Security Investigations in Harrisonburg, Virginia
- U.S. ICE & Homeland Security Investigations in Houston, Texas
- U.S. ICE & Homeland Security Investigations in California
- U.S. Postal Inspection Service in Capitol Heights, Maryland

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
