The US government will be paying $50 million to a software company.

It comes as part of a settlement where the Army pirated the company's software.

According to Daily Tech Online - "App-tricity" filed a nearly $2 million lawsuit against the US last year - claiming the Army installed their software on more devices - than it paid for.

Back in 2004, the Army paid the company for the software which allowed them to track soldiers in real time across multiple time zones.
