                                    • Prevention of software piracy Software companies take many steps to stop software piracy: An agreement between the company that developed the software and the user must be agreed before the software is installed. This is called the license agreement and covers copyright.Certain pieces of software require a unique licence key to be entered before the installation will continue.Some applications or programs will only run if the media (CD / DVD) is in the drive. Some applications or programs will only run if a special piece of hardware called a dongle is plugged into the back of the computer.

Works may be performed in educational establishments without infringing copyright, provided that no members of the public are present (s. 34): the parents of pupils are considered members of the public unless they have some other connection with the establishment (e.g., by being teachers or governors). Further provisions are contained in secondary legislation.
