Presentation Description

e-Government is a very complex domain having multi-dimensional aspects. Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and software piracy issues are directly related to e-government establishment. An analytical study between e-government readiness, education index and software piracy rate was conducted. It was found that e-government readiness was inversely proportional to software piracy rate and directly proportional to the education index.

How Piracy Affects the e-Government?: 

How Piracy Affects the e-Government? By M Kashif Farooq Presented at International Conference on Web Information Systems and Mining 2009 Published at IEEE Computer Society & ACM

Abstract : 

e-government is a very complex domain having multi-dimensional aspects. Intellectual Property Rights (IPR ) and software piracy issues are directly related to e-government establishment . An analytical study between e-government readiness , education index and software piracy rate was conducted . It was found that e-government readiness was inversely proportional to software piracy rate and directly proportional to the education index. Abstract

Scope of Research: 

Scope of Research In this paper, we conduct a comparative study of e-government ranking reports by United Nations (UN) and software piracy reports by Business Software Alliance (BSA)

Countries above the Trend Line (Piracy) of Graph: 

Graph Label Country E- Gov Rank Piracy Rate 1 Estonia 13 51 2 Ukraine 41 83 4 Venezuela 62 87 8 Azerbaijan 89 92 9 Maldives 95 92 10 Sri Lanka 101 90 11 Armenia 103 93 Countries above the Trend Line (Piracy) of Graph These Countries having good e- Gov rank as compare to piracy rate

Countries below the Trend Line (Piracy) of Graph: 

Graph Label Country E- Gov Rank Piracy Rate 3 South Africa 61 34 5 Mauritius 63 57 6 Egypt 79 60 7 Oman 84 61 12 India 113 69 13 Morocco 140 67 Countries below the Trend Line (Piracy) of Graph These Countries having good piracy rate as compare to e- Gov rank

E-Gov Rank vs Education Index: 

Graph Label Country E- Gov Rank Piracy Rate f Kazakhstan 81 97.59 h Montenegro 100 89.11 i Armenia 103 89.88 k Libyan Arab Jamahiriya 120 87.49 E- Gov Rank vs Education Index These Countries having good education index as compare to e- Gov rank

E-Gov Rank vs Education Index: 

Graph Label Country E- Gov Rank Piracy Rate a United Arab Emirates (UAE) 32 79.08 b Brazil 45 77.3 c South Africa 61 80.61 d El Salvador 67 77.23 e Egypt 79 73.23 g Guatemala 81 97.59 j India 113 61.95 l Pakistan 131 46.59 m Senegal 153 39.4 E- Gov Rank vs Education Index These Countries having good e- Gov rank as compare to Education Index

Conclusion: 

E-Readiness of e-Government rank is inversely proportional to software piracy rate and E-Readiness of e-Government rank is directly proportional to Education index However, few countries are away from trend line due to their policies, strategies and priorities about e-Government and education. Conclusion

Conclusion: 

Education and software piracy have heavy impact on national culture E-Readiness for e-government needs supportive national culture. Conclusion
