Chapter 17. Data Security > Software Piracy

Software Piracy

Software piracy is another major computer crime problem. Individuals are sometimes allowed to make copies of their programs for protection purposes, but the sale and/or the distribution of those copies to friends and other computer users is a violation of federal copyright laws.

With the growing concern over the copying problem, many software publishers have been forced to devise elaborate copy protection schemes. Piracy may not affect your own company directly, but the cost of combating piracy is eventually passed along to you as the consumer.
