I'm planning to write an article about software-terminology based on software-license in which I also want to include about pirated software which requires clear/exact understanding and meaning of pirated software. So,what is pirated software? Also want to know which term is used for non-pirated software.
- Is "pirated software" the same as "counterfeit software" said by Microsoft?
If there is other term should be used (or more appropriate/specific) rather than "pirated", then also suggest it. (Is it Genuine?)
