Copyright: Sharing Online Content and How Not Break the Law [Infographic]

Camila Souza

We get most of our information from the internet. And with this endless stream of information that is being shared, the question becomes: When are you breaking copyright law?

There has been an ongoing debate between the content creators and those sharing the information on how the issue should be enforced. At one end are the defenders of the content owners who either believe that copyright is a basic property right imperfectly embodied in law or who just believe that treating copyright that way is an important expedient that they should defend. And then there are those who believe that copyright is an authoritarian imposition, as a governmental interference in markets that should be free.

Wherever you stand, the important thing is to know the Dos and Don'ts of sharing online information. Check out this infographic and avoid breaking the law:
