The recent amount of software copyright violations

It's important to note that copyright infringement is a serious offense, and it's difficult to estimate the exact amount of losses incurred due to it. However, according to the Business Software Alliance, a trade group representing the software industry, the commercial value of unlicensed software worldwide was estimated to be $46.3 billion in 2019. This figure includes both the intentional use of pirated software and unintentional violations due to lack of knowledge or insufficient licensing management

It's important to respect intellectual property rights and use software legally and ethically by obtaining licensed copies and following the terms and conditions set by the software providers. This helps ensure that the creators and developers are properly compensated for their hard work and continue to produce high-quality software products. That's why we produced the Vendor License Manager for commercial usage.

You can find a large number of websites that are distributing nulled or cracked versions of paid software products. What did you feel if you were one of those software producers?
