यो सुरुवात सार्है राम्रो छ तर एस्लाई फलो गर्ने कस्ले ? जब कि हामी आँफै Pirated Software प्रयोग गर्न वाध्य छौ सायद यो पोलिसी टाइप गर्दा पनि Pirated Software नै प्रयोग गरेका होलान यस्तो स्थितिमा कस्को लागि साईबर ल बनाउने हो? नेपाल मा धेरै आइटि कम्पनी ले सफ्टवेर बनाउछन् । Pirated Software मै software बनाउने अनि त्यो Software लाइ copyright राख्ने?

एक महिना अगाडि मैले 3D Max को Original CD किन्न खोजेको थिए। नेपालमा त पाइने कुरै भएन बिदेशबाट मगाउदा लगभग $3459 पर्ने भो। लौन कस्तो महँगो। मैले त त्यसपछि original 3D Max चलाऊने धोको त्यागिदिए अनी तेही crack गरेकै software को जय जयकार भो। के गर्नु वाध्यता छ।

IT Policy and Cyber Law in Nepal is indeed a great initiation to improve IT in Nepal. As far as its implementation concern, i am +ve that this will be implemented slowly and steady. And we must have to enforce to implement this.
I agreed that we should discourage to use pirated software. But at present scenario, we can not afford to buy software paying high $$$ from international vendors, so for some time being we should not feel bad using cracked/pirated software to make our own software products. And policy should be to protect the rights of the Nepalease software products and vendors.

IT law ........ crap ...... even the authorities are breaking the piracy law and how do you expect others to follow ....... i bet most if not all the government office's pc use pirated windows and office in them .....

well archana in fact the cost of the software for supporting piracy is a pretty much a lame excuse.... well in your case if you really wanted to use a legal software than you could have opted for a FOSS replacement for 3dmax ...... blender 3d is a free open source program and is as good as 3d max ....... You may not be familiar with the program but everything can be learnt ....... Remember is you are a pirate (as referring not only to the pirated software creators but also the user and supporter of piracy) you are not giving the credits to a developer for his work. but a developer mainly creates a software to sell it , so 1 pirated software means snatching 1 bread away from a developer .

frankly speaking , i dont want cyber laws ...... it not gonna make any difference for me ..... i mean i think that there is enough brains with the authorities to make us follow it .........

haha so many complaints ........ well a look at a brighter side hai aba ........ Microsoft's $3 software package also called MSIS (Microsoft student innovation suite). This package is targeted towards the student of the third world countries . Microsoft are going to sell the software to the government and the government is gonna distribute it. The package is gonna include windows Xp starter edition , Microsoft office home , student 2007 , Microsoft Math 3.0 , Learning Essentials 2.0 , Windows live mail desktop. And all that is for just $3 i.e. rs 210 (approx).

So if you are really a piracy woe than there is a choice for you now. But still i think that the low paid version will provide much less functionality . Well and plz forgive me archana for i ended up writing a comment longer than you post.

haha I'm sure she would look good with an eye patch, one wooden leg, a parrot on her shoulder and holding map marked X for hidden tressure !! :)

archana said...

speed, Yes I use pirated software and I do not hesitate to accept the truth, no doubt in Nepal everybody use the pirated software. No worries, one fine day we will surely use full version purchased Microsoft product. :)

archana said...

IT law is definitely a great achievement in the sense of theory only not practical coz it is nearly impossible to control the piracy in Nepal in the present context. Though I know that in future it won't happens like that. That means there will come the control and it should be because a programmer has plucked out his hair so much to make a program and finally he is paid "Aaloo". Even the some genius type of guy can hack the program and make some small changes to change the programmer name too.

I think this is too much like day theft. At last a programmer get not even his name. His all works are gone in vain.

We buy a Vista DVD with only Rs. 70 or 75 but who have guessed that how many programmer and IT professional are involved and how much money was invested to develop it. Somebody might be happy of that due to the monopoly caused by Microsoft but if the same thing happens to us then we know the real sadness.

So if the Task Force of conrolling the piracy become active then what happens. Being lack of money we can't be able to buy the heavy budget softwares. So the only options reamains ie. FOSS Softwares. So how about switching to Linux and use the Open Source softwares?

CashlessBrother said...

Living in a country with average annual income of $250 (approx coz i don't know the exact figures)even talking about genuine software does not make sense. But yeah there are great hobbyist out there who code not for money and FOSS is the way to go. I have always been a Linux enthusiast and i think that the Linux flavors available today is so much user friendly. Well since Microsoft is releasing their $3 package maybe even the people who are uncomfortable with other OS can get the package and run various free open source software available for windows.
For me the only pirated software i have used so far is crystal report and Microsoft visual studio and that too i have uninstalled already and am planning to switch to Linux.As i have be already addicted to many open source software like Firefox , Sumatra pdf , open office org, aducity , blender 3d , vlc media player.

yeah nnepali archana would definetly look gr8 if you added a hook on her left hand .

We should not use other's intellectual property by just 'cracking'. It takes time. This is just the beginning.

check out good news here

and let me know if you are planning to use 3G

freemind said...

only in paper cyber law applies. I have seen many incidence where the violation has occured in nepal.

Many of the users takes my blogs content without any rights or prior notices.

We need to accept it for time being. May be in later years we have a better laws.

For e.g; I was lead when we developed www.creationnepal.com but the source codes of are spreaded all over kathmandu. (though i accept that we also used some sources from 4images.de and we are still putting their copyrights in our codes)

there are many incidences..
One of the popular ecom site (i wont mention name) had once upon time leaked credit card information of its customer... (babaaal bhako thiyo ni).

Who dares to care such thing???? Do we have time ???

Let this thing continue..

Hello Archana
I am a hacker (not by profession)cum civil engineer and now I am outside nepal. Recently I hacked SW Roads(welink Nepal) which was tough for me. As you already said cyber law has been introduced in Nepal. What if I repacked the cracked software & redistribute it outside my country. In this case does the rule apply to me... or what?? I am not really a professional hacker. I hack only for my Personal interest. But actually wanted to know.The law only applies when i start distribution,right?

The only original software (a few) Nepalis use is Kaspersky, which is selling licenses for a pretty reasonable price. Everything else is pirated, in government offices, schools, businesses,etc. If Nepal starts buying original software, it would slump into a financial crisis.
