The "Software Piracy" Controversy

Guest writes "Both the concept of "software piracy" and the term itself remain highly controversial. Some computer industry executives claim that so-called "piracy" is by far the largest problem facing the software industry. Others assert that it is a relatively minor problem and that the real problems are poor quality and excessive prices as a result of the failures of governments to enforce anti-trust laws and the consequent lack of meaningful competition. This article by The Linux Information Project (LINFO) looks at both sides of the issue and offers some practical solutions."
