Abstract
When everything in our life is connected to the digital world, software has become an inseparable component of our lives. Software, as a useful technology in the online world, has also contributed to economic growth. It has resulted in the creation of a vast number of jobs all over the world, as well as an economic boom. India has surpassed the United States as the world's largest software exporter. However, all countries with large software development businesses around the world are facing a big threat: piracy. Software Piracy is defined as the reproduction, distribution, or use of software without the author's express authorization. Software piracy has had a significant impact on the IT businesses, as well as the economy. Despite the fact that software piracy has been recognised and different steps have been implemented by authorities, incidents of software piracy have only decreased little. In this setting, the goal of this research paper is to understand the notion of software piracy, Issues and Challenges, as well as to analyse the existing legal framework such as the Information Technology Act of 2000, the Copyright Act of 1957, and any other connected law. The research examined the present legislative framework critically in order to identify gaps in the system and make recommendations for combating the threat of software piracy.
