Attitudes towards software piracy June 1, 2007

Posted by Null in Academic, Ethics.

Pirate the high rate! This has been the common tendency of the software pirates for a decade. Unauthorised copying, illegal resale, & multiple reuses of software products are common nowadays. Software piracy has become a severe issue in the software industry especially due to the escalating trends in unauthorized copying of software products within business environments and educational institutes all over the globe. As a result, these activities are jeopardizing billions of dollar revenues of the global software industry. The piracy act will not stop until the attitudes changes, and the attitudes will not change unless the actions are taken. Thus adequate measures should be taken to combat the attitudes of students and as well as the software piracy in general.

The above argument reflects the abstract of my study which was completed in an effort to understand the attitudes of students towards software piracy.
