The cost of software piracy is a growing problem for companies throughout the world. The rise of technology in the Middle East has also brought on the rise of software piracy to extreme levels. Countries such as Saudi Arabia have found themselves listed as the top offenders of software piracy, not only regionally, but globally. Being on such lists can cause irrevocable damage to its role in global technology advancement, economic growth within specific industries, and reputation as protectors and promoters of intellectual property and fair enterprise. It is for these reasons that Saudi Arabia must take steps to intervene and deter software piracy in the nation. It is vital to understand the cultural view of intellectual property to understand how to proceed. Thus, this paper clarifies the cultural view of intellectual property, as well as how the Saudi government has the means to take action and what outcomes the actions can expect to have on the nation.
