In this modern world it is easy for people to steal intellectual property that belongs to others and make money from it and that is why the law is so strict on such matters. Works of art like movies, literary works, musical works, radio broadcast are the content that the law known as copyrighting has been put in place to protect. However, if one seeks permission to redistribute the content from the owners, the law will not touch them.
Copyright laws usually depend on which country they are being enforced and are strict in some countries than in others, to protect yourself from being exposed one should carry out research if such laws are present in their countries and what fines are charged if one is caught. The law promises that those who have their content stolen from them to make profits for the undeserving will get justice and compensation for their losses.
The author of some original work should take it upon him/herself to register his/her work with copyright offices as early as possible so that if there is any infringement in the future then the law will be in a position to fight for his/her cause. The growth in technology in some ways is responsible for the increasing difficulty with which protecting copyright claims has become because people are now more subtle in the ways they steal protected content. One of the reasons that makes curbing of pirating original content a hard task to accomplish is that there are still illegal sites in existence that allow sharing and downloading of materials and this is crippling the owners of such a business.
Those who allow sharing of pirated software deal the businesses that produce the works a bad hand because the copyrighted materials are usually of low quality and this creates the wrong image in the users head. Internet service providers can also join the fight by helping in tracking and shutting down the operators who run pirate sites, this will tip the balance and help the original businesses get back on track.
Lately there has been inventions that are able to detect when copyright laws are being infringed and this is playing a positive role in helping reduce piracy. Some people have been in trouble when downloading pirated content because they do not know it’s a crime.
