Copyright in Cyberspace
Copyright infringement in cyberspace is a form of Intellectual Property Theft, which can lead to significant security issues and legal penalties. If a person attempts to use or distribute another person's work, who has "exclusive rights" over it, without authorization, he may be found guilty of copyright infringement.
The common copyright violations in cyberspace involve illegal download of movies, music files and pirating software applications.
Posting a copyrighted work such as writing or graphics online without the permission of the owner may also constitute copyright infringement in cyberspace.
