Copyright Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States

literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works. What is Copyright? It is illegal for anyone to violate any of the rights provided by the copyright
law to the owner of copyright.

The same is true for files you can download or otherwise acquire. http://legionofhonor.famsf.org/files/imagecache/exhibition_preview_large/THINKER_side_columns.jpg It is the user's responsibility to give thought to the wise and responsible use of technology. Software is protected by Copyright. 4 Types of Software Ownership Commercial
-Allows a business to sell a copy of software with manuals and documentation. Shareware
-Software that is given away free for a trial period. At the end of the period, the user must either pay a fee or erase it. Freeware
-Given away freely without any trial period. Is still the property of the creator. Public Domain
-Free and is not copy protected. 3 Types of Software Licenses Single User
-Allows one user per copy of software. Site License
-Owner may put as many copies as they wish as long as the copies remain at a given location. Network License
-Allows copy of software to be placed on a file server. http://imtmworldwide.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/shrug.jpg So confusing?!
So how is one to know what to do?? Assume all software is copyrighted even if it does not bear a copyright symbol. The only source for permission to copy copyrighted software is either a specific grant of that right in a license agreement or the express or implied (with regard to freeware) permission of the copyright holder. Retain all packaging materials that contain provisions of a licensing agreement between the user and the software copyright holder. Refer to these materials for information about what copying is permissible for the particular software program. Note that most license agreements prohibit renting, leasing, or lending original copies of software. The End! Failure to follow copyright law can result in:
-Criminal or Civil suits
-Compensatory Damages (loss by owner)
-Punitive Damages (deterrent)
