Information technology to me
Coming from a middle-class family, I have always viewed information technology to be something of necessity rather than of pleasure. While I have certainly be able to afford software such as Microsoft Office, for the purpose of schoolwork, it has always been the case that music and games are a luxury, reserved only for special occasions.
I certainly dread to imagine life without information technology and software; the rapid processing, analytical and organizational ability that software and the personal computer has conferred upon us. Indeed, the increased productivity brought about by information technology is certainly invaluableBack to top
DCI - Right or Wrong
In my opinion, I believe that engaging in DCI is fundamentally wrong. This is largely due to the set of moral values which I have been brought up with, and I am inclined to regard DCI as tantamount to stealing. While I do feel sympathy for those unable to afford original software and benefit from it, I feel that that is no moral justification to engage in DCI
I feel that the resolution of the issue of rampant DCI in our society has to be solved through a multi-pronged approach, and not simply through rigid enforcement of copyright law. In addition to education, software essential to increasing productivity and efficiency should be made available at as low a price as possible. The cost of subsidizing such software should be borne by software companies and governments alike; both have a responsibility towards the well-being of society. Only then would more people believe in the moral authority of those clamping down on DCI.
