Causes And Implications Of Piracy In The Software. Case Study


  • Raul Sorin FANTANA

    () (Christian University "Dimitrie Cantemir" – Brasov)


The paper presents the development of the subject of an intellectual property technical expertise report conducted at the request of a criminal investigation body in relation to software piracy. The technique of making a technical expertise report imposes strict compliance with the required objectives. As a result, the author of the report, who also authored this paper, considers appropriate to extensively study the subject highlighting (i) the endogenous conditions underlying the offense, ii) the exogenous factors that facilitated the perpetration and iii) the resulting material and moral damages. The paper, original and relevant, emphasizes the thoroughness and professionalism needed by the intellectual property technical expert, which often exceeds the specialization of a single faculty on the one hand, and the beauty of this border specialization that combines engineering, economics, law and social sciences, on the other hand.
