Moving applications to the web can help major publishers block piracy and unauthorized use of their software. There are a few reasons for this:

  • Web applications are more difficult to pirate. Piracy is often done by cracking software so that it can be used without a license. This is more difficult to do with web applications because they are hosted on a server and cannot be easily copied.
  • Web applications can be protected by DRM. Digital rights management (DRM) is a technology that can be used to restrict unauthorized access to digital content. This can be used to prevent users from pirating web applications or from using them without a license.
    Web applications can be updated more easily. Software publishers can more easily update web applications to fix security vulnerabilities and to prevent piracy. This is because web applications do not need to be installed on users' computers.
  • Of course, moving applications to the web is not a foolproof way to prevent piracy. However, it can make it more difficult to pirate software and can help software publishers protect their intellectual property.

Here are some additional ways that software publishers can help to prevent piracy and unauthorized use of their software:

  • Use strong passwords and two-factor authentication. This can make it more difficult for unauthorized users to access software accounts.
  • Monitor for suspicious activity. Software publishers can use analytics tools to monitor for suspicious activity, such as multiple login attempts from the same IP address.
  • Take legal action against pirates. Software publishers can take legal action against pirates to deter them from continuing to pirate software.

By taking these steps, software publishers can help to protect their intellectual property and prevent piracy.

It can have major impact on Open Source operating systems and software use. Using pirated and unauthorized access to software and especially Microsoft products in many countries is the only reason for popularity of them. If users have to pay for them on monthly basis, they usually seek alternative open source software. For example LibreOffice can easily take the position of Microsoft Offce.
