Have you heard the term copyright? I think yes, but you may be wonder what it means or what it does. Copyright is a form to protect your work against plagiarism or any kind of misuse. But should copyright penalties be tougher? My answer is no. Tougher laws won’t solve the problems that copyright is fighting in today’s world, like piracy. Increasing the penalties will only make the problem bigger. Like Oscar Wilde said: “the best way to get rid of temptation is drooped into it.” This means that people will infringe copyright no matter what.
Copyright is one of the biggest illegal problems we meet these days. A co-founder named Peter Sunde wrote the text “The Pirate Bay’s Peter Sunde: It’s Evolution, Stupid” an article from WIRED, Febryary 10, 2012. Where he talks about the entertainment industry. In the text, Peter says that the entertainment industry are against evolution. He feels treated unfairly because the government of the US told the government of Sweden, if they did not get rid of the popular page “The Pirate Bay” they would stop all trade between these 2 countries. Peter Sunde suggests that people should stop listening to music of the entertainment industry etc. He defines that this entertainment industry is corrupt, and to stop this we all have to go against them
Since time immemorial, there have been many copyright cases all over the world, with the likes of Millet versus Snowden case dominating the courts in the 1800s. Many describe it as a “global scourge”. Copyright cases have never been easy to handle, and they usually happen from time to time. As such, there has been a lot of wrangles over copyright between artists, of which most have ended up in court. According to Tehranian (2011), copyright infringement refers to the act of breaking some or all of a copyright creator’s select rights approved by the federal Copyright Act. Additionally, there are three major elements that must be present for a violation to occur and these include: the copyright owner is supposed to have an admissible copyright, it is necessary that the individual who is

DMCA 's “anti-circumvention” provisions have been used to repress a wide array of legitimate activites. Numerous reports show that DMCA has been used to stifle free speech and scientific research. Banning all of the circumvention acts gives corporations the power to eliminate the public 's fair use rights. The movie industry’s use of encryption on DVDs has crippled consumers’ ability to make personal-use copies of movies they have purchased. Youtube 's 3 strike policy allows the owner of the content to ban channels that critisize their product. Section 1201 of DMCA has been used by a number of copyright owners to stifle free spech in a number of cases like the lawsuit against 2600 magazine, threats against Princeton Professor Edward
It followed domestic debates about the intellectual property of literary works. It is only in 1777, promoted by Beaumarchais, and in 1790, with the Article 1, Section 8 in the U.S. Constitution, also known as the Copyright Act, that the French and American intellectual property laws were created. Since the 1886 Berne Convention, and then with the creation of the UN World Intellectual Property Organization agency in 1967, IP laws have acquired an international dimension, which one can argue is consistent with the constant globalisation of the creative and cultural industries. All IP laws share a common definition of ‘copyright’, characterised by WIPO as “a legal term used to describe the rights that creators have over their literary and artistic works”. The varied copyrighted works include ‘literary works, computer programs, films, music, choreographies, artistic works, architecture, advertisements, maps, and technical drawings’ (Wipo.int, n.d.). In addition, the definition of copyright clearly specifies that only ‘the creative expressions’ of ideas are protected, not ideas themselves . Because both patents and trademarks have an important part in the history of IP in motion pictures, it is necessary to define these terms as well. ‘Patents’ relate to ‘the exclusive rights granted for the invention of a tangible, useful and non-obvious product or process’ (Vaidhyanathan, 2001, p. 18; Wipo.int, n.d.). ‘Trademarks’ are ‘signs, words, phrases, logos, designs, sounds […]’ (ibid.). In the case of the film industry, they are particularly helpful to distinguish studios’ productions. Unlike copyrights, patents and trademarks are not automatic and have a limited duration, although they can be renewed. It is interesting to note that IP laws have been greatly extended during the 20th century, and that they did not apply to
Students are constantly using the internet as a way to communicate, conduct research, and a vast majority of other activities that are made available to them through this convenient resource. However, in many occasions, a student is unable to perform important research due to filters that stand in their way. Not everyone has personal internet resources, and it is important that everyone has access to credible information. Schools should provide unfiltered internet access.
People have discovered ways to gain free access to intellectual properties via the internet. Piracy has seemingly become a threat to the economy of companies that own an intellectual product because it causes them to lose their profit. Internet Piracy gives people access to media without having them pay and allows them the comfort of just downloading a file or even streaming from the internet.Piracy is considered by most as morally wrong and degrading the quality and reputation of certain intellectual properties.

To better understand digital rights, one must remember that plays, books, pictures, films, music and other digital content are subjected
A license is a temporary transfer of interest in a copyright from the owner of the copyright to the licensee. In a license, the rights granted are scarce. It allows the licensee to use the copyrighted work without fearing any claim of copyright infringement brought before by the owner of the copyright. It varies from a copyright assignment as this is subject to a license agreement and also the sole ownership rests with the original owner of the copyright. An assignment entails the rights to the assignee who then becomes the owner of the interest.
Intellectual property has been around for a quite a long time now but it was not popular until in the last century. Now it has taken place an important role in majority of the world especially the business world.
Digital piracy refers to the general use of digital resources and capabilities (in some cases, hardware and reverse engineering) to illegally copy, hijack digital protection and distribute counterfeited or modified digital commercial products like software, music, films, electronic books, online journals and among others, without the consent to the legal owner. (Higgins, 2008) The evolution of information technology can be attributed for the rise and propagation of digital piracy. (Ramayah, 2009)
Computer software is pirated by simply copying it onto another machine not authorised for its use. Book piracy takes place when a book is reproduced by someone other than the real publisher and sold in the market. A performer's right is violated when a live performance of an artist is recorded or telecasted live without his/her permission. In a cinematographic work piracy generally takes place through unauthorised reproduction of the film in video forms and/or displaying the video through cable networks without taking proper authorisation from the film producer (the right holder). In fact, there are numerous other ways through which piracy of copyrighted works take place. The nature and extent of piracy also vary across the segments of the copyright industry. It is, therefore, necessary to discuss the nature and extent of piracy problems segment wise. Such an attempt is made in the following
