Software Piracy

Software piracy (the illegal copying of software programs) is a worldwide problem — more than $11 billion is lost to piracy every year. Because software is valuable, and it is easy to create an exact copy of a program from a single computer, software piracy is widespread.

The illegal copying of software programs is a crime! In the Singapore and many other countries, copyright law provides for severe civil and criminal penalties for the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of copyrighted material. Copyrighted material includes, but is not limited to, computer programs and accompanying sounds, images and text.

Software Asset Management

It is important to manage software well, just as you would any other valuable company asset, in order to avoid serious problems. APIT aggressively enforces our company’s proprietary rights under the Singapore copyright laws, but we know that poor software asset management often keeps people from complying with the law.
