What would you like to do?
Illegal copying of software for sharing within the group, or friends, clubs and other groups, or the same and resale. The large scale production loses billions of money each year because of piracy, although it may seem innocent to install an application on a few of other machines (soft loading), it may shatter the use of a small software company.

Computer software piracy is the unauthorized use of computer software. Installing a single use copy on multiple computers, downloading cracked software from the internet, …and purchasing bootleg copies of software are all examples of computer software piracy.
because of love....boray!boray!boray! wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hahahaha :D
A guy in Germany copied off an unidentified song by an unidentified singer and put it as his own song and he had to go to prison for a very long time .
the answer is simple. you invade, you go to jail.
If you are caught by an antiP2P group, such as the RIAA, you will be sued, and considering they will have proof of you downloading/uploading before hand, it is basically a fin…e. It can range from $3000-$4000 on average I think.

top ten question about computer piracy w/ answer
First off, computer piracy is very illegal no matter in what form it is. Piracy is punishable by jail and copyright associated fines. Second, pirating over the internet or aid…ing in it can add to the legal fines and up to a lifetime in jail with a single keystroke.
Computer Piracy is usually the distribution of computer software without the permission of the company. The money that would be used for a sale of the commercial copy usually …goes to the programmer or programmers of the software. Other who may have benefited from the sales include a range of people depending on the type and scale of the software. For example a video game may include investors, programmers, developers, artists, producers, publishers, distribution, and retail clerks; upwards of hundreds of people who are benefited by the sale of the software.
It is usually nothing
There are many answers of this question. Here are some of the most common factors in causing computer piracy: 1. Customers may perceive that the prices are too high or that …they are getting a poor value. So rather than get "ripped off," they steal the digital product. This is a self-perpetuating problem, since the more people steal, the higher the prices will be, and the higher the prices, the more people will steal. Photoshop is a good example of the effects of theft on prices. Nowadays, the latest version is about $1000 USD. Maybe if people didn't steal over the years, it would run you about $150. 2. This is often a crime among those in a low-income bracket. There are both casual (personal use) and commercial pirates in this group. Those who cannot afford to go see a movie or whose parents won't take them or allow them to go may resort to file-sharing to get too see the movie. Then there are those who simply cannot make ends meet and steal and duplicate movies for a fee. So a bad economy would be the cause here. 3. There is also "social piracy." This probably shouldn't be considered piracy since copyright law has a fair use clause. But people may take 3-20 second audio ("sound bites") or video clips and incorporate them into videos on YouTube. It is so easy to want to latch onto something popular and use it to draw attention to yourself. That has traditionally been allowed, but the industry and government are cracking down. This is only considered computer piracy because it is labeled as such, and it similar to making drugs illegal. Tighter laws only increase the level of crime and do nothing to deal with the real problems. 4. There is also "activism piracy" or "ideological piracy." That is when someone steals products from an industry, organization, or business they don't think should exist. Someone who is against pornography might, for instance, pirate it heavily and give it away in an attempt to destroy the market for it. Why buy it if you can get it for free? So the "legitimate" market does not make enough income to produce more. Groups which oppose traditional morality have been known to steal materials from pro-family groups. There are places online encouraging people to order tons of donation materials from various ministries and pro-family groups, not give donations, and then destroy the materials.
Regulating computer software piracy is done through many ways by different companies. One place is Department of Regulation, the purpose of this company is to establish a poli…cy to help prevent software piracy with in the Department of Agriculture. There are several companies that help deal with this issue, depending on the type of software.
