Case Study: My Experience With Lawsuits
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. Copyrighting is the law in question, it main purpose is to protect works of art such as literary works, radio broadcasts, musical works, movies and many more from being redistributed by people who do not have the legal authority to do so. Those who seek permission first before redistributing that content are not subject to punishment under that law.
Doing research on these laws, whether they are present in your country on not could be a very wise move because you would not act in ways to infringe them thus being able to avoid being charged in a court of law and paying ridiculous amounts in fines. 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.
However, for the law to do so for you, any author of artist works should register with copyright offices so that if any situation rises such that they have to go to court then their claims can hold water. The reason that copyright infringement claims are harder to protect than eve is because people do it far away from the seeing eyes of the law, in their computers and it is as easy as clicking a mouse. 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.
Another downside of using pirated content is the poor quality with which they come with, this gives a bad image of the business that produces such work. It is important for the authorities that manage right access to these materials to include internet service providers in the fight who then can use their knowledge and skills to get those who infringe these laws to justice and enable the ones who work hard to produce such art to get their rightful share.
Creators and users of pirated software should be on the watch because new technology has been invented with the capability of detecting whether these people are breaking laws concerning piracy; one step towards getting rid of piracy. Some people have been in trouble when downloading pirated content because they do not know it’s a crime. One company known for issuing lawsuits to copyright infringers is the Strike 3 holdings that produces adult films. Such people are advised to get lawyers to represent them, they are also advised not to sign anything or delete anything.
