Now a days we live in a society where we use computers on daily basis.such as work places, universities etc...but in almost every computer we use pirated software... Such as I am a student of architecture.To complete my design I have to use pirated software.And after graduation when I enter in workplace I have to work with architectural firm that also use pirated software for design.the software are very much costly and as an student we cannot afford it. So in this case what should I do? Will my earnings be halal if I used pirated software for designing?
Is piracy haram?
As a general related ruling: As much as I know, haram/robbery is haram/robbery; even in cyberspace. Since a right of a person(s)/companies will be stolen, anyway.
