What is Software Piracy?
Software piracy involves the illegal copying, selling, and/or distributing of software. Illegal copying of software is one of the most common forms of software piracy. These two common scenarios violate copyright laws and put the software users at risk:
Installing software on more company computers than the company has purchased licenses for
Sharing pre-registered software with friends and co-workers
Organizations under-reporting the number of software installations they have made
WM Software has anti-piracy protection built into all of its software products.
What is activation?
Activation helps verify that you are using genuine WM Software products and they have not been used on more computers than the WM Software license terms allow. In this way, activation helps prevent software counterfeiting. The information collected during activation will not be used to identify or contact you.
You have from 14 days to 30 days after installing the software to activate it, depending on the software product. This is the evaluation period, and the software will stop working after the evaluation period unless a license is purchased, at which point the software can be activated. This activation process is very quick and easy for the end user.
These techniques minimizes software piracy for WM Software products and ensures our development time is involved in creating solutions for our customers.
