Legal Copyright Infringements Of Copyright

Aug 18, 2007
There are some very creative people in this world and some of them may have a lapse in their creative process when infringements of copyright occur. Anyone that has ever had anything stolen from them will be sure to understand how violated the creative person will feel when their work is used without permission.

Since this person was adversely affected by the illegal actions of another, they have the right to not only sue for infringements of copyright, but they are also allowed to sue the individual concerned with the violation for damages. The damages could come from not being able to work due to depression over the situation, or from the income he lost because his clients do not trust him to protect the information that they have given him in strict confidence.

There are no infringements of copyright if a person talks about something he plans to create. Until the article becomes a physical reality and is considered an expression in some way, then the idea is up for grabs to anyone that has the forethought to copyright what is discussed. A person can be violated in this manner if their conversation is overhead by someone else, even the waitress that served you dinner.

The infringements of Copyright might occur with malicious intent, or purely by accident. Some people will create something and copyright it, and then turn the item over to another creative person to integrate the piece into a press release or other content that will be used on the creative person's website. The person shared that creative piece with someone else who used it for financial gain.

This is one of the types of infringements of copyright that is very similar to using insider information on the stock market. The information that you have access to is considered to be inner company information and is not meant for release to the public by any means of the imagination. When the information gets out, a lot of harm can be incurred and the owner of the material has no other recourse but to file charges for infringements of copyright.

There are various countries that offer some copyright protection, and the prosecution for infringements of copyright will not be the same in all countries. The international laws for copyright infringement are viewed differently in Europe, and can be totally ignored by many countries. There may be other avenues of recourse to recoup losses caused by infringements of copyright and it is best to consult an attorney that specializes in copyrights to discuss all available options.
