What kinds of activities are probable violations of the Copyright Law?

Any of the following activities, if done without permission of the copyright owner:

  • Copying and sharing images, music, movies, television shows or other copyrighted material through the use of P2P technology.
  • Purchasing a CD or DVD and then making copies for others.
  • Posting or plagiarizing copyrighted material on your personal Web space.
  • Downloading anything of which you don't already own a copy (software, MP3s, movies, television shows, etc.).
