Software Piracy

Software piracy is the illegal copying, distribution, or use of software. Pirated software hurts everyone-software developers, distributors and resellers, and ultimately all software users.

Using pirated software is risky because:
  • It often lacks key elements and documentation, and includes no valid upgrade options
  • Untested, counterfeit discs containing pirated software may be infected with viruses that can damage your hard drive and cripple your entire network
  • Individuals and organizations put themselves at risk by illegally using a product protected by copyright laws
You may never have considered that software purchased from online software distributors could be illegal-and that's just what disreputable distributors and resellers are banking on. cautions you to be especially careful when purchasing products online.

If you are not buying directly from, please ensure you are purchasing software from authorized resellers.
