There is no copyright law in my country. Is is permissible for us to use pirated softwares, as they are widely available throught the country and our goverment doesn't have any objection on it. Further can we download evaluation versions and then crack them ?
1. It is permissible to use pirated software but morally incorrect from an Islamic point of view.
2. Could you be more specific with your second query? Also what is the need to crack them?
