Around the world, years of education and enforcement, and a growing understanding of the benefits of properly managing software assets, have led to a modest decrease in unlicensed software use. From 2015 to 2017, the worldwide unlicensed software rate declined 2 percentage points from 39 percent to 37 percent and the commercial value of unlicensed software dropped 8 percent in constant currency to $46.3 billion globally.
