She, too, remains with them as a m...

    DEMOCRATIC OUTLAWS? Pirates, the outlaws of the sea. If like me, the first idea that comes to mind regarding pirates is a group of raiding and plundering individuals. This is due to today's society glamorizing the pirates as fascinating characters. Historically, not much written information has been left behind. The pirates did not leave ship logs or accounts of plunders, because it could be used to incriminate them. Society today has invented the pirates to fit a romantic mold. Therefore, we g...

    Piracy is usually determined as a seizure of property (ship, airplane or software) that holds no commission from the owner (Piracy 1). It is mostly linked to the dirty, bearded men that sailed the seven seas and robed merchant ships or ships that carried a valuable cargo. This however, was not the case in the late eighties and is definitely not the case today in the nineties. Now software pirates copy software without the permission of the company for their own personal benefits. Since piracy in...

    Back in history, there were pirates that surrounded Hong Kong and European countries. They would look for treasures and keep an eye for gold. A passenger ship was one of the few ships that pirates look for since it contained jewelry and money from the people. It was easy to do. Just get in, take what you need, and get out. The passengers would not fight, nor would they try to be brave and get their necessities back. Pirates could get in and out quick; thus, the authorities never were able to co...

    Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary defines piracy as, an act of robbery on the high seas or an act resembling such robbery (885). From this we can define software piracy as an act of robbery on the information superhighway. Many people do not see it as such. Even though the average person would never consider going into a convenience store and stealing a stick of gum, many have no qualms about stealing thousands of dollars worth of software. In a study done by the Canadian Alliance Against S...
