Piracy and Copyright Law Today's business world is quite different than the legal landscape it once resembled over thirty years ago.

When it comes to reading, whether it be news, fiction, literature, science, history, articles, or the like, reading on the Web is inherently different from reading from a physical printed book, magazine, or newspaper. Both the Net and print have many advantages and disadvantages. For example, the Net provides a wider range of access to information than a book does, however, the book provides a linear way of thinking and reading, whereas the Net causes non-linear thinking (Carr 104).

Jenkins highlights the fact that new media technologies have enabled the flow of content through many channels (11). This is shown by how sharing of content, collection of content through the search for images and publication in platforms that material could easily be shared.
Understanding Digital Inclusion The society in which we live in today is advancing towards the era of modernization in a very rapid manner. Dominated by the ever-changing developments of technology, most of us are directly or indirectly affected by the transformation which comes along with digital revolution. Being a tool which have transformed and have the capability to transform how we live and connect to one another, new technology is often regarded as a double-edged sword which is associated with social stratifications as it can either alleviate or exacerbate existing divisions in the society (Warschauer & al., 2004).

Social media has created an online “culture” that has changed the way people think and behave.

While Thompson believes that there are enormous benefits that come from social interactions
These are some of the questions any individual in touch with modern media might ask himself in the 21st century. It is still unclear what are the consequences of a world mediated by an unprecedented amount of information, noise and imagery. Contents that are expanding themselves and being enlarged by the nanosecond. Both by traditional media outlets and more recently by people who consume (and produce) media in the various forms it is offered (especially the digital).
