  1. DIGITAL PIRACY Digital piracy means an illegal reproduction of digital information such as software, movies, music, etc. It is a form of copyright infringement. Digital piracy involves downloading & distributing copyright material without actually paying for it. It has taken a forefront due to the unwillingness to pay for content or software. Hackers practice digital piracy with the intention of making financial profits by reselling the pirated content. Pirated software can not be updated which makes it open to vulnerabilities. Critical services may be disabled for a pirated OS as it is not validated by an updated server. Digital piracy has implications on cybersecurity. The pirated content can be used by hackers to spread virus and malware. Once infected, they use these systems to launch an attack. Always use trusted software and never download material illegally. Also, do not accept duplicated material from unfamiliar sources. In case affordability is an issue, it is recommended to use a similar software from trusted open source instead of using  a pirated copy. www.centextech.com Centex Technologies 13355 Noel Road, Suite # 1100, Dallas, TX 75240 Phone: (972) 375 - 9654 501 N. 4th Street, Killeen, TX 76541 Phone: (254) 213 - 4740 1201 Peachtree St NE, Suite 200, Atlanta, GA 30361 7600 Chevy Chase Drive, Suite 300, Austin, TX 78752 Phone: (512) 956 - 5454 Phone: (404) 994 - 5074
