A Practical Guide to Exploiting and Enforcing Rights
Chapter 11: What is copyright infringement?
In part 1 we got to grips with what copyright is, then Part 2 covered who owns the copyright and how it is managed with contracts and licences. This Part now looks at when copyright is infringed. This chapter begins by explaining what the law says copyright infringement is, including primary and secondary infringement, criminal and civil liability, and online copyright infringement (elsewhere referred to as piracy). It also mentions other types of laws that can apply in situations of copyright infringement such as fraud, breach of contract, passing-off, defamation, and human rights; including privacy and freedom of speech.
