It refers to the term where any brand or person who has a copyright of a particular symbol or logo finds another symbol matching with its copyright symbol and can claim under act of copyright infringnment.

Copyright protection varies from country to country, with different options for recourse and different amounts of protection. Modern technology makes it relatively easy to copy a product or information, and some companies derive a substantial part of their revenue from replicating what other companies have created. In an international setting, it can be difficult to prove copyright ownership, and domestic courts may see enforcement of copyright claims from international companies as a threat to national productivity. Some international organizations, such as the European Union, attempt to keep the regulations and enforcement guidelines of its member countries as harmonized as possible.

The growing importance of the Internet has created new obstacles for copyright holders. It is easier than ever for copyrighted materials to be accessed by companies around the world, and the creation of new technologies has outpaced the regulatory environment’s ability to ensure that copyrights apply to new formats. For example, the music industry was caught off guard by the development of online music sharing websites such as Napster. Companies seeking targets for copyright infringement claims can go after the companies providing the files, but could also seek damages from internet service providers (ISPs) as well as individual users
