    Abstract :

    With the rapid growth of information technology, there has been an increasing trend to digitalize tools and information and move away from the traditional forms of doing business. This rapid advancement has been seen for the most part as positive. Unfortunately it has lead to a number of unforeseen problems. Copyright laws that had originally been suited for physical texts and tools could no longer be applied to digital works. The entire notion of property as something necessarily physical has transformed into something more abstract, giving rise to the concept of intellectual property. Intellectual property is defined as anything created using one’s intellect. This includes computer software, books, art, schematics, music, and other creative works. With the concept of intellectual property came new legislation to protect these works. Unfortunately, this legislation, though it prohibits software piracy, has been insufficient to prevent widespread piracy in most of the world.
