I know this type of question has been asked before, but my scenario is different.
I'm from a country where piracy doesn't matter much. In my 4 years of Electrical Engineering, almost all the books I've read are photocopied versions. Our teachers would order an original book, and then place the book at a local photocopy shop so that other students could get a photocopied version of it for as less as $3. Almost all the softwares in my electrical engineering were cracked versions. It was like a custom there.
Now, after my engineering, I joined a company, and the same scenario is there. I was given tutorials that are only licensed to watch on-line for a paid subscription. For learning a particular technology, I was given an e-book, and that wasn't purchased; the book was downloaded actually from some torrent site.
So, what I have to do now in this condition. Sometimes, I think to be obtain everything legally, but to what extent? From Windows of my laptop to Photoshop installed, everything is cracked.
Now, my question is:
Keeping in mind these circumstances, is it still Haram? And if so, how I should avoid it?
