Tag: Pirated

Pirated Copy (or Pirated) are unauthorized use of intellectual properties covered by intellectual property law, such as the right to exclusivily reproduce copyrighted materials.
For softwares and audio video material, unauthorized reproduction and distribution is also commonly referred to as pirated copy. The practice of labeling the act of infringement as “piracy” actually predates copyright itself, giving the rightful owner a monopoly on publication, reproduction and distribution. Those who violated the charter were labeled pirates.
