Correct Answer - Option 3 : Pirated software

The correct answer is Pirated Software.

  • Pirated Software is the unauthorized use, duplication, or sale of copyrighted software.
    • Pirated software is software that has been copied or distributed for free or at a vastly reduced price against the wishes of the creator.
    • The term "piracy" comes from the music industry and specifically the illegal broadcasting of music without paying a royalty.
    • Windows 10 automatically scans your computer for pirated software.

  • Cracked software is usually (but not always!) pirated.
  • The operative term is ‘crack’, which means that some type of patch or workaround was applied to defeat copy protection.
