Multimedia digital piracy

  2. 2. Introduction To Digital Piracy • What is Piracy? “Unauthorised copying of software, music or films, so-called digital piracy” While there are definitions of “pirated copyright goods”, there is currently no specific legal definition of digital piracy, which would be more accurately described as “digital infringement of copyright”.
  3. 3. What Is Copyright? • Copyright is a legal concept, enacted by most governments, giving the creator of an original work exclusive rights to it, usually for a limited time, with the intention of enabling the creator of intellectual wealth (e.g. the photographer of a photograph or the author of a book) to get compensated for their work and be able to financially support themselves. Generally, it is "the right to copy", but also gives the copyright holder the right to be credited for the work.
  4. 4. Music Piracy & Video Piracy • Music Piracy For music, it is the copying and distributing of copies of a piece of music for which the composer, recording artist, or copyright holding record company did not give consent. It is a form of copyright infringement(An act that disregards an agreement or a right), which is a crime in many countries.
  5. 5. Music Piracy & Video Piracy • Video Piracy Whereas for video piracy, a movie is usually released in several formats and different versions as the primary sources used by a group for a particular movie may vary. Pirated movies are primarily released by these organized groups, commonly referred to as scene groups or warez groups. The first release of a movie is usually of a lower quality due to a lack of sources, but is eventually replaced with higher-quality releases as better sources become available.

  12. 12. APPLICATIONS • Forensics And Piracy Deterrence
  13. 13. Forensic watermark • Forensic watermark applications enhance a content owner's ability to detect and respond to misuse of its assets. Forensic watermarking is used not only to gather evidence for criminal proceedings, but also to enforce contractual usage agreements between a content owner and the people or companies with which it shares its content. It provides positive, irrefutable evidence of misuse for leaked content assets.
