List of Most Frequently Pirated Softwares on the Internet

Here is the List of most pirated Softwares via the internet, much of which consisted of security tools from Symantec and productivity and design tools from Adobe – makes me really wonder if Adobe’s high price points have anything to do with them being a prime piracy target. If only software was made really affordable for individual use, I suppose piracy can be brought down a lot.

Here's the complete list.

1. McAfee VirusScan
2. Symantec Norton Anti-Virus
3. McAfee Internet Security Suite
4. Intuit TurboTax
5. Adobe Photoshop (CS / CS3 and other variants)
6. Adobe Acrobat Professional
7. Intuit Quicken Home and Business
8. Symantec Norton pcAnywhere
9. Symantec Norton Ghost
10. Adobe Creative Suite

    It definitely should be. Everyone has pirated copy of MS Office at home. As a matter of fact, it may be the most pirated software of all, not counting Windows XP.

    Based on stats from p2p sites, I'd say these are the top five pirated programs:

    1. Windows XP
    2. MS Office
    3. Photoshop
    4. Nero
    5. WinRAR

    Runners up:

    Dreamweaver
    NOD32
    Zone Alarm (lots of clueless people out there, eh?)
    Windows Vista (so much for WGA)

    I think i'm goin to agree with michael. However most individuals are not aware of the capabilities of freeware alternatives out there, probably because they are not/less promoted.
