If you create original content for a living, the issue of piracy on the internet is more than just a theoretical problem. It’s a threat to your livelihood!
This is true whether you’re a big movie studio with billions invested in blockbuster movies or an individual blogger typing away in a bedroom. The issues raised by copyright laws and internet piracy are not going away anytime soon.
- There is a general consensus that internet piracy is wrong, even as it has become more commonplace.
- Most of us want to see ideas spread freely online, and new creation encouraged.
Are these beliefs at odds?
We don’t think so. Most online copyright infringement occurs because it’s so easy to copy online. But most people are willing to respect your rights, if you make it easy for them to comply.
