This question is sort of a follow up to:
A very well known university in the UK is using my software for its student government elections and paid only the $5 price. I've sent them emails and spoken on the phone with the bursar, and they refuse to do anything.
I know what the legal solutions are (I'm an attorney), but since I am in the US and it is only $999, it probably doesn't make sense financially to hire a UK lawyer to address this.
I'm looking for creative non-legal solutions. I don't know much about the UK and universities there. Anything I can do to shame/embarrass the university into paying the remaining amount owed? For example, is there a public/government agency or a copyright enforcement group that might be interested?
I would do three things:
And with a little linking, posting and support on your site of the "Case Study" and the "Guest Blog Post" you will get $999 of earned media out of their name-- and you can call it even.
You could contact the student government entity and ask them to address the problem. I would ask nicely in the initial email and go from there. They may be able to talk to the bursar.
