Copyright Law Day
The copyright law is very necessary for every day life. Without it we would always have disagreements over who owns what , what fair usage rules are, and those with their own ideas and intellectual property would be in a constant battle. The music industry, authors, magazine editors, T.V. stations and producers, computer programmers are groups that depend on the copyright law. Credit deserves with those that earn it. The copyright law is something we are all aware of but never quite sure of.
In the beginning the copyright law only applied to books It gave authors control of and profit from them. Internet piracy is a common way to avoid paying the creators of various works. They download the works without paying for them and that is a form of copyright infringement. There are no only a few that engage in this activity but many and this is affecting various industries and millions of $$ being lost.
