The Effects of Software/Product Piracy
Trade press reported that, in 2004, an incredible thirty-five percent of software used worldwide was unlicensed, pirated, or counterfeit. Additionally, many users of counterfeit and unlicensed software are not aware that their software is not genuine. The negative impact of software piracy is not limited to these consumers, who spend millions each year on software. It also has a negative impact on local and regional economies, as well as the global economy.
DeLever supports efforts that aim to strengthen local, national, and global economies and to provide customers with software that helps them realise their full potential.
Delever works to protect customers and encourage a genuine healthy software initiative.
The DeLever ‘Genuine’ Initiative
The DeLever ‘Genuine’ Initiative focuses on combating DeLever software / product counterfeiting and other forms of software/product piracy. The initiative will focus on three strategic areas: Education, Engineering, and Enforcement.
The key to protecting consumers and reducing software/product piracy are educational efforts. The best way to protect consumers is to raise their awareness of the issue, equip them to spot counterfeit software/products, and help them understand what they should do about it.
DeLever work closely with their reseller / partners to make consumers aware of the increasing risks associated with acquiring and installing counterfeit software/products. There may also be instances of credit card theft by selling software/products online that later turned out to be counterfeit.
Installing and using counterfeit software/products can prevent customers from obtaining some updates and technical support.
The DeLever ‘Genuine’ Initiative three key areas:
DeLever investigate and pursue any instances where they are informed of counterfeit or unlicenced software/products being sold other than from DeLever or one of it’s respected licenced resellers. DeLever will file civil actions against any software/product pirates around the globe.
