From my experience, and research in the field, many educational institutions are knowingly or unintentionally using unlicensed versions of many softwares like wolframs mathematica, ibms spss, adobes writer pro etc for students when they enroll in classes.
I have witnessed where in software is installed and license keys are duplicated or executables are patched or cetain dll files are replaced.
This could be due to limited knowledge of institutions on the impact of such a process or unknown license policies bundled with softwares and programs.
Moreover the software agreements are so huge and long that reading them is comsidered a waste of time.
The first step should be not education but modifying the documents to include simpler one or two liners describing the licenses allowed and then followed by education.
