What is Music Piracy Music piracy is generally described as thedeliberate infringement of copyright and/or trade marksfor commercial gain. It covers both physical andinternet piracy. There are three types of physicalpiracy: 1. Simple Piracy; 2. Counterfeits; and 3. Bootlegs
What is Music Piracy• Simple piracy - the packaging of the pirate copy is different from the original. They are often compilations, such as the "greatest hits" of a specific artist, or a collection of a specific genre, such as dance tracks• Counterfeits - the packaging of the pirate copy resembles the original as closely as possible. The record companies trade marks are reproduced in order to mislead the consumer into believing that they are buying an original product.• Bootlegs - these are the unauthorised recordings of live or broadcast performances.
