What is Copyright Infringement?
Copyright Infringement pertains to the violation of someone's intellectual property (IP). It is another term for piracy of the theft of someone's original creation, especially if the one who stole reaps the benefits and not the creator of the material.
To understand copyright infringement, you must first know the rights, as well as the limitations, of a copyright holder. It's possible to engage in copying and distributing someone's work without actually violating or infringing anything, so you're not legally accountable. It's also possible to be subjected to a legal process even if you had no intention or knowledge that you stole from the owner.
