Just yesterday I was talking with my dad about illegal software. And we were asking ourself, if you have a company for webdesign/webdevelopment there are alot of tools like photoshop,artisteer,fireworks and name it. These are all tools that are very expensive, and it is illegal to use them if you did not buy them.
But my fathers question was, if he bought a website from someone(we'll call the someone john). And john used an illegal copy of photoshop and designed a website, then coded it in dreamweaver and sold it to my dad. Who is there to check if he is using a legal copy? And if he continues to grow in the years (john), does someone has the right to ask what software do you use? And if he refuses to tell someone or the authorities? Or if he tells them he uses paint, what can the authorities do or say.
Let's keep a long story short:
Who is there to check if someone is using legal software for webprojects or things like that. Or do they even check on it? And what if you say you use paint and ofcourse everyone could see that it's not made with paint but still, you can say it.
