Want t0 kn0w Ab0ut pirAcy aNd tHe LaW?????

My deary bloggieeee...... as you know software piracy is against the law, so watch out there.... under the law, a company can be held liable for its employees actions . if an employee is installing unauthorized software copies on company computers or acquiring illegal sofware through the internet, the company can be sued for copyright infringement. this is true even if the company's management was unaware of the employee's actions.
Quite simply, to make or download unauthorized copies of software is to break the law, no matter how many copies are involved. Whether you are casually making a few copies for friends, loaning disks, distributing or downloading pirated software via the internet, or buying a single software program and then installing it on 100 of your company's ersonal computer, you are committing a copyright infringement. It does'nt matter if you are doing it to make money or not, if you or your company is caught copying software, you may be held liable under both civil and criminal law.
If the copyright owner brings a civil action against you, the owner can seek to stop you from using its software and request monetary damages.........................

HoW to pROtect aNd preVent fRom sOftwAre piRacY??

Dear bloggy,,,i'm just wondering,, how to protect and prevent us from software piracy.I know, its hard for us because the price is really really cheap!!!!but always remember that there is no guarantee that the software is secure or will work properly when installed.Firstly, be cautious when ordering software over the internet.Many resellers with internet storefronts or those who sell from auction sites knowingly distribute copies of softy illegally.The best way to prevent software piracy is to report it.We also can educate those who believe they are saving money by pirating software couldn't be more mistaken..Legal, financial penalties,higher administrative costs and lowered productivity make piracy very expensive.....And also,,the simplest way is,,,,,,,,,to put me,myself in the shoes of the software developers.Surely i'll get mad to those who pirated my software..The software developers are the most vulnerable to this crime..So,,please don't support software piracy!!!

gEt tO KnoW tYpeS oF PiRacY!!!!

Olla!! Hi bloggy...! I'm back and got something to tell you... Well, it is about that software piracy again! But..i know you will not get bored with me, right bloggy???? I get to know that there are various types of piracy. First, End User piracy...let me tell you what exactly it is. It occurs when an individual reproduces copies of software without authorization like.....using one licensed copy to install a programme on multiple computers, copying disks for installation and distribution, and taking advantange of upgrade offers without having a legal copy of the version to be upgraded...

The second one is Internet piracy... It occurs when software is downloaded from the Internet. I found out that Internet piracy can take several forms such as piratyes wewbsites that make software available for free download or in exchange for uploaded programs, internet auction sites that offer counterfeit, out-of-channel,infringing copyright software, peer-to-peer networks that enable unauthorized transfer of copyrighted programs.

Next,Hard-Disk Loading. I only know that it occurs when a business who sells new computers loads illegal copies of software onto the hard disks to make the purchase of the machines more interactive. Last but not leastis Software Counterfeiting. This type of piracy is the illegal duplication and sale of copyrighted product. That's all for now bloggy!!!! I promise you that i will tell you more on this software piracy. Thanks for sharing this information with me.... See you later bloggy!!

SofTware piraCy???

Today is cloudy nothing extraordinary to do... dear blOggy, i got a lot of assignment to be completed.. the dateline is coming over... HELP ME BLOGGY!!! :(

I'm doing research on Software Piracy lately...thanks to the internet.. my research become much more easier... I get to know that Software Piracy is the unauthorized duplication, distribution or use of computer software -- for example , making more copies of software than the license allows, or installing software licensed for one computer onto multiple computers or a server. Copying software is an act of copyright infringement, and is subject to civil and criminal penalties. It's illegal whether you use pirated software yourself, give it away, or sell it. And aiding piracy by providing unauthorized access to software or to serial numbers used to register software can also be illegal. Whether software piracy is deliberate or not, it is still illegal and punishable by law...
so, GET AWAY from this Software Piracy!!!! i also get to know that Software Piracy is IMPOSSIBLE to stop although software companies are launching more and more lawsuits against major infraction...sound serious right? Hmm.. i don't know what else to add on this software piracy.. this is just the introduction for this topic.. maybe later, i will tell you more and more about software piracy..thats all for now... i will add more info in another post.. just wait n see okay?.. bubbye my dearie bloggy....
