Have you ever had any issues with software licensing? If you have had some sort of issue in terms of breaching some software license, how did you manage to deal with it? What precautions would you say I should take to ensure I do not fall into the same trap or problem with regards to software licensing?
The Challenges of Dealing with Software Licensing
I know you are aware that piracy is everywhere. With the three major operating systems: Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux; Microsoft Windows is the one that gets pirated of the three. I guess this is because of the 3, Microsoft Windows is the one most people and companies used around the globe.
Since we all know that piracy happens everywhere, you should be very cautious when purchasing an application online. I know there are people who got victimized by fake app distributors where the product is original but the license code that they sell is fake and will stop working after a month’s use.
So, to prevent this from happening, when purchasing an application online, always make sure you buy the product from its official website or from the software developer. Also, if you are interested in a particular program, make sure to do a little search, probably using Google, to learn more information about the product and where exactly you can buy it.
It is always good to research about the product because you don’t know you might not like it anymore after a few days, weeks, or months use.
