pirated software 7 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 0  
I own a 2007 Denali with navigation. The car came with a DVD loaded with maps. I found out that there is an updated version of the maps available for $299. On craigslist i found a "used" version of the updated maps for $80. If i purchase the updated maps DVD and it turns out to be pirated then what is my exposure? There is almost no way for me to obtain proof that the DVD was not lifted off the internet or copied from an original. What are others doing when purchasing used software?

My advice is to buy legal copy of software and not to think about these things too much. Just think on people who built and work on this software. How they will get paid if you dont pay your piece of software? And , how many others think similar in this moment? On the other hand, many of illegal copies of software contain different worms, bugs, viruses and other little programs that may cost you more than $200. Think twice before you make right decision.

While i am aware that there are criminal penalties for pirating software, i have never heard of anyone being prosecuted for buying pirated software. Doesnt seem as if there is much enforcement. Look at what happend to the owner of napster.....nothing!
