Have You Used Pirated Software?
Many years ago, I started a career of writing how-to books about financial software programs. The market was prime because in those days, instruction manuals came with the program in printed form, so in order to get the instructions, if you "borrowed" software from someone else, you needed to buy a book.
It appears that there is still a lot of pirating going on. According to a recent survey, lots of people still use software they didn't pay for, and it's up to company managers to figure out ways to keep their employees on the straight and narrow.
