Copyright Infringement Questions

What is copyright infringement?

What is Copyright Infringement? Copyright infringement is the illegal use of works in copyright, violating the copyright holder's "exclusive rights", like the right to duplicate or do the copyrighted work, spread the info controlled within copyrighted works, or to create derivative works. Frequently it refers to the copying “intellectual property” without written permission from the copyright holder; usually this is the publisher that represents the creator of the work. For more information about the laws relating to copyright infringement, read below to find thousands of Experts answers.

If someone received a notice to settle for copyright infringement forward from their ISP and the site copyrightsettlements.com wants the party to pay $200 for the infringement. Does the person pay $200 on their website as requested? Should not legal correspondence be through snail mail?

Seeing how they do not have the individual’s home address or even the individual personal name so therefore this would be the only way for them to do this. If the individual wishes to resolve the matter then they should, pay the desired amount. Should they pursue the matter if you didn’t settle, the next step for them would be to subpoena the ISP in order to obtain the individual’s name and address. Then the copyright infringement paperwork could be sent directly to the individual.

What are my options if I am being sued for copyright infringement for downloading a movie from a bit torrent website?

Most of these type cases can be settled out of court. In most situations at this point you are in the negotiation stage. They will tell you what it will cost to settle, and then you will counter offer them a more realist number. At some point you will meet in the middle.

If someone is being charged with copyright infringement for downloading a video, the legal letter informing him or her of this said that for downloading one video they want $1600 to let the matter drop. Is this an unreasonable monetary sum for something like this?

Most infringement letters demand $3,000 to $5,000 for one infringement, so $1,600 would be considered low. It is important to act on the letter immediately though. If let go and they sue, copyright law entitles them to up to $150,000 in damages, plus attorney’s fees. It is possible to negotiate with them and counter offer $500 and see how they respond. They may agree to $1,000 or less.

With permission, someone has copied a page-copyrighted work, and the party then rewrote the page. May the party submit both pages to see if the rewritten page would be considered copyright infringement?

Even if the individual did reword the papers, if he or she did not have authorization to do that then it will be believed to be derivative use, which is a copyright infringement. If the individual just studied, what was wrote on the papers and then in their own words rewrote it completely then it will not be breach.

Copyright Infringement can lead to many questions. Experts frequently answer questions on a wide range of topics like copyright infringement punishment, copyright infringement penalty, accused of copyright infringement and more. Whether someone is unsure of the provision of law, and needs a second opinion or a clarification, all someone needs to do is ask an Expert for quick and affordable answers.

Recent Copyright Infringement Questions

  • I am self-publishing a novel, and as part of the dialogue,

    I am self-publishing a novel, and as part of the dialogue, I wanted to include text and social media communication (iMessage, Whatsapp, OkCupid, etc. conversation screenshots). If I properly gave rights to the companies who own these products, and give the caveat that these conversations do not reflect the views of these companies, would I be able to use the images of an iMessage chat? Or is that considered copyright infringement/do I need to pay a royalty to use said images of the iMessage chat to Apple?

  • Hi. I uploaded a beach sand, bucket and spade picture from

    Hi. I uploaded a beach sand, bucket and spade picture from Google free images, back in May 2010. I'm pretty sure it was copyright free or i would not have used it on my Blog.
    Yesterday I received a letter from Getty Images in partnership with Dun & Bradstreet stating that photo was 'unlicensed imagery' represented by Getty Images for online promo. purposes.
    They have not sent any prior C&D letters, and this one demands in a nut shell, $627.00 to clear up the matter within 14 days.
    Further in the letter, it closes all the doors and states emphatically "in violation of Aust. Copyright Act.1968 and ultimately as regardless of any thing else that "as the end user you are ultimately responsible for resolving this matter."
    What say you
    With thanks *****
