In many developing countries around the world, software for business and education is in high demand. However, software is priced based on the economies of developed countries, making software out of the reach of people in developing countries.
Prices are exceptionally high for software used by businesses to improve their productivity, such as Microsoft Office. The high prices make it difficult for businesses to obtain such software legally.
In addition, one problem faced by people and businesses in developing countries in their search for original works is that they are not easily available. The lack of a sizable market in many developing countries has deterred creators of copyrighted work from entering the market with their products. As a result, people and business are unable to obtain original works.
Both DHL and FedEx delivers to 220 countries worldwide, but services of such international freight companies may be out of the financial capacity of citizens and businesses in the developing world.
We have established that to the developing world, software prices are very high. It can be said that copyright? infringement allows individuals and businesses in the developing world a chance to benefit from these copyrighted works, which they would not originally be able to access due to their high cost. Copyright infringement? allows people in the developing world to be educated and for businesses to have the same opportunities as those in developed countries. Education and increased productivity both help to level the playing field and allow economies in the developing world to benefit from the technology that the world has developed thus far.
