    Default Way to reduce Piracy

    Hi everybody,
    I was just thinking how to stop piracy. The first question is why do you want to get a pirated copy? It is because they are costly and we just want to have it. I think the price of the software has to be reduced if many are buying it. The advantage will be the software company can know how many are selling and try to make it better and better.

    You know we have now indian edition books which are affordable. This has really changed the whole thing of xeroxing the books. Now people buy them. Donot you think it will be the same with the software. They should give a good manual with the software and many other things like online updates or they give the updates for free from the shop, and discount on other software if you become a member.

    Many of us play games and we need a full version to enjoy it to a maximum extent. Make the price of popular games to something like Rs 75 or even less.

    Just imagine if there are 10 people who want to play a similar game and it cost around Rs 400. So people will try to get it from somewhere. Now reduce the cost of it to say Rs 75, I think all the people will buy it. So it is Rs 750, and the game company can keep a count of number of players ( advantage to them ). I think reducing the price of the softwares will bring down piracy and the company can get a profit and can estimate correctly the number of users.

    I think the price of each song should go from Rs 1 - max of Rs 10. The songs should be of high quality, so that people buy it.

    I know many people have the software in their machine even though they do not require it because they think that it will be difficult for them get it later and keep lots ! of junks in their machine. They hardly know how to use it. The tension of getting the software should be nill. He should be able to get it when he needs it from the market at affordable price.

    I was just thinking if Digit could do something about this. Like it can have a sub site where you have different softwares listed and people can say that they want to purchase the software. Then Digit can approach the particular software company and ask for a reduced price and say look here so many want to buy it. They are ready to purchace the licence copy if it is made affordable, and want to reduce piracy.

    Software people are trying to make it more secure. But still people bresk it. There is no need for such high secure stuff when people can buy it.

    I would like to know what you Digit and other people think on this idea.
    It will be great to know each person's view. If they have good suggestion please write back.

    Make life simple..

    hi venky
    just wanted to say that the Rs. 75 legal game cds are not gonna happen. so is the same with other softwares. n personally, i believe in open source, so try using as many freewares as possible and if u 'HAVE' to use some pro tools, there's no better option than pirated ones(unless u got some money tree cause even smaller softwares like Winzip cost around 40 dollors => ~ ~ Rs. 1900). so go open source, n don't worry bout big corporates losing money.(imagine saying i won't use that pirated windows cause then microsoft will loose 3500 bucks, ha!)

    The third option is the one of the way out.
    Sumeet's idea is nice.That may be the only other way.
    By the by I just want to know who R the people who sincerely want the piracy to stop.
    Surely I don't belong to category.
    Even if they reduce it to a mere Rs.200 will people buy?
    I don't think so if an free pirated version is available.
    That's what is happening to Music industry.We don't buy ACDs that cost mere Rs.95 instead we share it. I'm really sorry if U buy ACDs.
    Eventhough one must feel sorry for them ,Its their fate or may be curse.

    Default Legalise Piracy

    Have you guys thought of another option Legalising Piracy... In Netherlands and Canada, you can legally buy Marijuana.... In certain Far east countries Prostitution has been legalised.... so why not legalise Piracy in a country like India....
    Take life as it comes....

    Reducing the price may help a lot than the other Ideas. No one actually likes to be underground. If you get it cheaply then most of the ppl will buy the original cds
