Abstract

Software piracy has lead to huge losses for software publishers, and yet they seem to be unable to find a solution to the problem. Managers in organizations using computer software must also be aware of the problem of software piracy because of their potential legal liability. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the cost of piracy to software publishers and organizations that use illegal copies of software. In addition, the paper examines current alternatives available to discourage the problem and emphasizes the roll of user education as a potential solution.
