Abstract

In the completely unregulated microcomputer industry, ethical restrictions to business are often self imposed or put in place by the suppliers of product. This article addresses the problems which can arise from the implementation of "authorization" programs. It is the history of one product's success in the Canadian marketplace, from the U.S. vendor, to the Canadian distributor, to computer dealers, to the end-user. The focus is on an authorization program, applied after the fact, to a local market which was unwilling to abide by the program's good intent.
