Back when I started doing software work directly for customers I must admit that I didn’t pay for the programming software that I used.This was in the days of DOS based programming software, and I had a laptop with Allen-Bradley (APS and AI), Eagle Signal Micro 190 and some Omron package.When Windows-based programs came out I quickly recognized the advantage and greater value of RSLogix500 over the old DOS-based stuff.Since I had been in business for a couple of years at this point, I had no problem purchasing a license, but programs such as Auto CAD were still beyond my reach (and my old laptop’s capabilities!The vendors and manufacturers kept us honest, though there were still back doors that a lot of people knew about.
I justified this by thinking “I will only be using one laptop at a time”.This was true until I hired my first programmer (hi Larry!By this time I could afford (and really needed) another laptop.I installed my software on the new laptop but found it quite easy to also keep it on the old one.
Since I had installed the software while working for other companies (at their request), I felt justified in not removing it when I left. I had no idea how much the software had cost originally, and piracy was really not a topic back in those days.
I had taken a course in engineering ethics as part of my Electrical Engineering studies, but they didn’t even mention software.
