Controversy of Warez

Freeware1Warez is a plural form of ware – short of software – in leetspeak, a form of symbolic writing that is used as an alternative of English alphabet that is commonly used on Internet. Warez refers to software whose copy-protection has been taken off which means that despite of having copyright, this software can be distributed to everyone. Some people see this as a form of software piracy, though people who upload and download warez argue that this is not piracy because they do not get any profits. People who upload it simply do it so other people can download it.

Most popular software includes software from big vendors like Microsoft, Macromedia, Symantec and Adobe Systems. These vendors work along with Business Software Alliance (BSA) to close all the loopholes so people cannot simply distribute their software without the vendors gaining profits. Downloading and using warez are also considered illegal and can land people in jail, though still many people download and use it. But getting software for free can be really beneficial, so god bless warez.

Back in the 1990s when only a few home consumers had broadband, warez were spread through floppy or CD. Warez is different from freeware or shareware. This software is actually free and legal to be distributed and copied. Opinion of the people concerning warez is divided. On one side, people believe that it is illegal while on the other side people show that they are okay with warez. In fact, there are many people who call themselves software pirates that are proud with the name pirate, thinking the way Hollywood portrays pirates. They even go as far as using pirate talk when they converse. Despite of many controversies of warez, there are people who support warez. They even have their own community where they can talk and share ideas.
