In the Philippines, software piracy is a headache among software companies and the government. Pilipinas Anti-Piracy Team (PAPT) continue to monitor and prosecute end-users of pirated software.
PAPT pursues all-out war against all forms of software piracy, Sun Star Cebu reported. Business Software Alliance reveals that software piracy rate in the Philippines is 71% in 2004 and 2005 as cited in Peering into Software Piracy.

Software piracy cannot be solved by the authorities alone. It calls for cooperation from various sectors of the society.

Are you using licensed Adobe Photoshop? If not, isn’t it better to uninstall it?
