Feb. 14, 2009 - PRLog -- What is Software Piracy?
Software piracy is the unauthorized duplication of computer software. Although most computer users today are aware that unauthorized use and duplication of software is
illegal, many show a general disregard for the importance of treating software as valuable
intellectual property.

According to the BSA (Business Software Alliance) and IDC 5th Annual Global Software
Piracy Study, revenue losses due to software piracy have increased and were nearly $48
billion in the year 2007.

Types of Software Piracy
Softlifting: purchasing a single licensed copy of software and loading it onto several
computers contrary to the license terms. For example, sharing software with friends, co-
workers and others.
Uploading and downloading: making unauthorized copies of copyrighted software available to end users connected by modem to online service providers and/or the Internet.
Software counterfeiting: illegally duplicating and selling copyrighted software in a form
designed to make it appear legitimate
OEM unbundling: selling standalone software that was intended to be bundled with specific

accompanying hardware
Hard disk loading: installing unauthorized copies of software onto the hard disks of
personal computers, often as an incentive for the end user to buy the hardware from that
particular hardware dealer
Renting: unauthorized selling of software for temporary use, like you would a video.

Why Protect Your Software?
Developing a software application involves a major investment of time, money and effort.
Software piracy (including illegal network licenses and unfulfilled upgrades) denies you
the revenue you deserve and harms your paying customers, who ultimately bear the cost of
illegal use of your products. Piracy limits your ability to be competitive, leading to higher-priced, less advanced products for your customers.

Intellectual Property Protection.
Strong intellectual property protection for software is an important part of any nation's eeconomic growth and development, and has numerous benefits:
Encourages individuals and businesses to create new software and new software
applications, as well as improving existing applications
Encourages an indigenous software industry
Ensures new ideas and technologies are widely distributed
Promotes investment in the national economy
Encourages technology transfers between nations
Increase your sales potential

With increased revenues, you are free to invest more in improving your product and
offering competitive prices, making it more accessible to a wider customer base.
