Software Piracy And How It Is Influenced By The Corruption Level For Any Given Country. Open Source And Free Software As Solutions To The Problem
AbstractToday’s IT world is slowly driving towards open source and open software trends. Even Microsoft is taking such approach with some of its software products (the MSDNAA program is the best example). Although everyone is happy that software is becoming cheaper or even open source, we must ask ourselves what led to this trend. Why are software companies giving out software products for free when just a few years ago they were charging us big money for it? The answer is, of course, marketing issues. But another big factor is the piracy factor.
