Our motivation in joining anti-piracy movement together with the global software companies is our obligation to our licensed customers, our partners and resellers, and the software industry at large. Piracy threatens development and innovation by cheating legitimate software developers out of the rights and rewards of their valuable and hard-earned work. The loss of jobs, wages, tax revenues and critical investments in new technologies are just some of the possible destructive results of software piracy. Piracy may harm everyone of us including consumers, honest resellers, the software industry and the national and local economies, not to mention the threats of organized crime connected to large scale piracy.
According to researches software piracy is a serious source of revenue loss for the software industry. These studies estimate the revenue value lost to software piracy for business applications in the U.S. during 2005 was $3.2 billion. Worldwide, the loss is estimated at $12.2 billion or 1 out of every 3 copies being pirated.
