Event Title

Correlation of Autodesk Architecture Software License Prices and Training Prices with Resident’s Income in Kosovo

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

Nowadays no profession could be imagined without use of many software applications that facilitate everyday work. Software is an intellectual property and its use is a cost to user and income to the intellectual property owner. The practice of purchasing software licenses in Kosovo is relatively new and is applied on a very small scale. The architect's profession requires the use of some very costly software applications. This paper aims to compare license prices and training prices with average income of residents for some Autodesk software applications in different countries. Market equilibrium, based on supply and demand will determine reasonable price that users in Kosovo would be willing to pay based on their low income. Affordable license prices along with law enforcement will lower illegal software usage.
