People who produce intellectual content to make money have it in the back of their minds to protect such content from people who might want to take away from them and use it to make money illegally. 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. However, if one seeks permission to redistribute the content from the owners, the law will not touch them.
These laws are very strict and usually depend on what country that a person is living in, this is enough cause for one to find out if his/her country has such so as to act in such a way that they will never find themselves tangled by the laws. Owners who have had their content plagiarized or stolen and have used the law as their choice of weapon can testify that they have always come out on top; justice was served.
Enforcement of laws dealing with infringement of copyrights is only possible if the author of that original piece of art be it a song, movie or a book made an effort to register with the copyright offices. 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. To make matters worse people no longer have any shred of integrity because some of them are creating networks that share copyrighted materials, this is costing the entertainment millions and denying the artists that made the content their right.
It is a fact that all the pirated software are not as high quality as the original ones and this really degrades the value of the whole thing, it is like bad advertisement for the artists who made such content. Internet service providers can help minimize such wrong actions by helping in detecting and tracking such sites and shutting them down so that the original businesses can get what is rightfully theirs.
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, however, have infringed protected content without their knowledge without their prior knowledge. One company known for issuing lawsuits to copyright infringers is the Strike 3 holdings that produces adult films. If you are ever in such a situation the best action to take is get a defense lawyer who will advise you on what to do.
