Prices of Proprietary Software
Precios de software privativo (propietario)


These are the prices for the US listed on the websites of proprietary software companies. Software companies generally charge the same price for their software everywhere in the world, so these prices can be taken as a rough guide for the rest of the world as well, although you should contact the software companies for the exact price in your country. Software companies also generally charge the same license fee regardless of the version of the software, so the prices for the latest version hold for older versions as well. For instance, Microsoft charges businesses the same license fee for computers with Windows 95 as computers with Windows XP.


In practice, many of these programs are sold at less than list price by internet venders. Software can often be bought at significantly cheaper prices, especially when sold with new computers or with special academic or bulk discounts. Nonetheless, the prices listed by the software companies' websites are the prices that these companies expect us to pay so we should use them in when trying to calculate the difference in cost between FLOSS (Free/Libre/Open Source Software) and proprietary software. More importantly, these are the prices that companies, schools, ciber-cafes, governments and other organizations will have to pay if they are busted for not having legal licenses for their software. The Business Software Alliance (BSA) generally gives the offender a month to buy licenses for all their illegal software at list price.


In the case of a university like UNAMBA in Abancay, Peru, every machine has roughly $2000 worth of software. If UNAMBA were ever busted by the BSA, the school would go bankrupt trying to pay for legal licenses for all its proprietary software.



Estos son los precios listados para Estado Unidos en las páginas web de empresas de software privativo. Por lo general empresas de software cobra el mismo precio por su software en todo el mundo, tal que estos precios pueden ser una guía aproximada para lo demás de mundo también, aunque debe contactar el representante en su país para el precio exacto. Empresas de software a menudo cobran el mismo para la licencia, sin distinción de la versión del software, tal que el precio la ultima versión sea el precio para las versiones viejas también. Por ejemplo, Microsoft cobra a negocios el mismo para computadoras con Windows 95 como computadores con Windows XP.


En la práctica muchos de estos programas son vendido por menos del precio listado por vendedores en el internet. Muchas veces software puede ser comprado por mucho menos, especialmente cuando vendido con una computadora nueva o con descuentos académicos o de mayoreo. Sin embargo, estos son los precios que estas empresas pretenden que nosotros paguemos, tal que debemos usarlos al tratar de calcular la diferencia en costo entre software libre (open source) y software privativo. Lo que es más importante, estos son los precios que empresas, escuelas, cabinas de internet, gobiernos, y otras organizaciones tengan que pagar si sean multado por no tener licencias legales para su software. Por lo general, la BSA (Alianza de Empresas de Software) le da al infractor un mes para comprar licencias de el software que esté usando ilegalmente, pero tenga que pagar el precio listado.


In el caso de una universidad como UNAMBA en Abancay, Perú, cada maquina tiene acerca de $2000 de software instalado. Si UNAMBA sea multado por la BSA, la escuela llevaría a la quiebra pagando por todas las licencias de su software privativo.
