The three principles selected for the matrix include Autonomy, Non-maleficence, and Veracity. Autonomy can be described as the freedom of an individual to take his/her own decisions. Every individual is free to use genuine or pirated software which is solely based on the conscience of an individual to consider it as ethical or unethical. However, the decision an individual makes should not harm any other individual or group or it should be non-maleficence. At the same time, the decision should not violate the rules and the laws established by the state or federal government. The truth related to incurrence of any act in relation to software piracy should be brought into the limelight so that any such occurrence of piracy in the future can be prevented.
