software piracy

Software piracy is when copies of copyrighted software

are illegally created and distributed. In the case of software piracy, it is irrelevant whether the software is used privately or for business

purposes. Copying can be done by downloading from the Internet or from other servers, and distribution can be done by copying to other media

. Software piracy always occurs when the user has not purchased the software and does not have a license for its use, i.e. when he has pirated copies. The licensing of software determines whether or how often it may be copied or installed.
