Peer to Peer and Copyright Infringements

Using peer-to-peer (P2P) software to get free copies of music, movies, TV shows, or video games that you would otherwise have to pay for, is illegal. Doing so violates the copyrights of others and may subject you to civil and criminal penalties. The US Department of Education has issued the following statement about penalties for copyright infringement: “Penalties for copyright infringement include civil and criminal penalties. In general, anyone found liable for civil copyright infringement may be ordered to pay either actual damages or ‘statutory’ damages affixed at not less than $750 and not more than $30,000 per work infringed. For ‘willful’ infringement, a court may award up to $150,000 per work infringed. A court can, in its discretion, also assess costs and attorneys’ fees.” For details, see Title 17, United States Code, Sections 504, 505.
