    Writing a report just need punctuation double checked?

    Software piracy is the collective appellation used to define, indictable unlawful distribution of computer software.

    is the comma in the right place?

    Nerd786, in my opinion you could put the comma in between indictable and unlawful, or you could use and/or instead.

    I am not sure if this would be appropriate but software could potentially be distributed to markets where it is not being sold in, maybe as to why piracy happens.

    I'm not really sure if there are any at all, piracy is there because of the fact that we have to pay for some pieces of software and since it is in a place where people can pirate software and still remain anonymous, it makes it hard to catch those who do pirate software.

    In some way or another you could say there are no main reasons to allow it since we should be paying for what we intend to buy but since it is on the internet and with it being very hard to catch those who do, we tend to let it occur most of the time.
