Erin S. Clark7/30/2012Jared Bruner CIS 100 1 Definition of Internet PiracyInternet Piracy The unlawful reproduction and/or distribution of any copyrighted digital file that can change hands over the Internet. This can be done with music files, videos and movies, e-books, software, and other materials. Internet piracy has become a worldwide crime problem, because of the relative ease with which it can be committed, even over long distances.

Hill , Adam. What is Internet Piracy. wiseGEEK. 21 June 2012. Web.

One of the first types of files that was pirated in a widespread way was digital music files, also known as mp3s, because of the .mp3 file extension they carry. Several very popular file sharing programs were developed, beginning in the 1990s, which facilitated the transfer of these types of files, both legitimate and pirated. These file sharing programs have been the subject of a great deal of scrutiny, then and since, because many people have used them to obtain copyrighted video and music without paying for it. Definitions:

Internet Piracy : uploading of commercial software to the internet for anyone to copy or download; streaming , P2P file sharing of movies and music without the owners permission/free of charge

The laws of different countries vary slightly as far as mp3 files are concerned. In Canada and Europe, downloaded, copied music files for personal use is legal, whereas it is illegal in the United States. Copies of movies obtained through Internet piracy are illegal in most Western countries, however.

The illegal copying of software for distribution within the organization, or to friends, clubs and other groups, or for duplication and resale. The software industry loses billions of dollars each year to piracy, and although it may seem innocent enough to install an application on a couple of additional machines (called "softloading" and "softlifting"), it may ultimately shatter the profitability of a small software company.Encyclopedia, Definition of Software Piracy PCMAG.com. Web.

Software piracy is a major issue in the U.S. and Europe, but it is rampant in the rest of the world where major applications are routinely copied by the thousands for resale.

Definitions:

Hard Disk Loading: Occurs when a company or individual sells computers pre-loaded with pirated software

Softlifting: Occurs when a person buys a single software program and pirates it onto several computers

WAYS

TO

PIRATE

Bit Torrent: Includes sites such as Pirates Bay (public) or Demonoid 9private) Peer assisted digital content delivery platform that provides the fastest, most efficient means of distributing, discovering and consuming large high quality files on the web ; music, movies.

P2P: Includes programs such as Napster, Kazaa Bear SHARE and Limewire. P2P uses the bandwidth of the users actually on the network. The network is used to share content files, containing audio, video, data or anything in digital format.

mIRC: Shareware internet relay chat client for windows, serves as a simple chat utility, however its integrated, scripted language makes it extremely versatile. More complicated than Torrents. IRC is Real time internet text messaging, DIRECT client to client, puts you in a queue. Erin S. Clark7/30/2012Jared Bruner CIS 100 7Different View pointsON

My most FAVORITE sites in the PAST were Napster

& Limewire

HOWEVERNow that I have had the opportunity to research this topic more in depth I understand the far reaching repercussions of pirating just a simple little song, game, movie or software program as a result, I pay for ALL of MY downloads and I am also contributing to the communication/education on this issue to other students here at MMCC via my Internet Piracy Facebook page
