  2. 2. <ul><li>Definition of piracy: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ When you make illegal copies of someone’s creative work, you are stealing and breaking the [copyright] law.” </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>“ It is commonly known as piracy, but it’s a </li></ul><ul><li>too benign term that doesn’t even begin to </li></ul><ul><li>adequately describe the toll that music theft </li></ul><ul><li>takes on the many artists, songwriters, [and] </li></ul><ul><li>record label employees…whose hard work and </li></ul><ul><li>great talent make music possible.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Internet piracy is prevalent and is spreading </li></ul><ul><li>across the globe. </li></ul><ul><li>“ China: 85% of music is pirated, largest pirated-music market followed by Indonesia </li></ul><ul><li>with 80%. Mexico, Russia, and Ukraine all cited as having piracy rates of 60% or higher” </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>“ Criminal penalties for first time offenders can be as high as five years in prison and </li></ul><ul><li>$250,000 in fines. Civil penalties can run into many thousands of dollars in damages and legal fees. The minimum penalty is $750 per </li></ul><ul><li>song.” </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>“ The No Electronic Theft Law (NET Act) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Criminal penalties can run up to 5 years in prison and/or $250,00 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>in fines, even if you didn’t do it for monetary or financial or </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>commercial gain. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If you did expect something, even if it just involves swapping your files for someone else’s, as in MP3 trading, you can be sentenced to as much as 5 years in prison. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Regardless of whether you expected to profit, you’re still liable in </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>civil court for damages and lost profits of the copyright holder. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Or the copyright holders can sue you for up to $150,000 in </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>statutory damages for each of their copyrighted works you illegally </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>copy or distribute.&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Penalties are real and they are high!!! </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>“ Recent revelations predict that the music industry is going to resort to dirty tricks to halt music piracy. These include but are not limited to…planting Trojan horses, disabling individual computers,…sending out bogus files posing as real files, and going into your PC to erase files” </li></ul><ul><li>“ The only thing that can possibly save the music industry is to remove music from the digital merry-go-round-keep it off computers or make it very difficult to transfer. The only way to do this is via a massive format change that both improves the music and offers better value. </li></ul><ul><li>Only a revolutionary format change can save the music business.” </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Hackers, beware. </li></ul><ul><li>Piracy is a crime punishable by law. </li></ul><ul><li>If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime!!!!! </li></ul>
