Reinstalling trial software. Morally grey area or outright piracy?
Imagine the scenario, if an end user was to try to circumvent the 30 day trial period on a piece of software by uninstalling and reinstalling again. Would this be considered software piracy or just an exploitation of an gap in the EULA?
I am of the opinion that legally, this behaviour would be considered piracy and the law would fall on the side of the vendor on the basis that the user has intentionally and knowingly attempted to bypass the terms.
Of course the vendor, certainly for bespoke software has no real way of enforcing or discovering this behaviour but I would be interested to know where other people come down on this.
