On a day to day basis we do copyright infringement knowingly or unknowingly. Like when we download movies illegally , making snaps of movies in theaters, Using cracked software , Using copyright songs in videos etc

But there are ways to avoid such things and to prevent being end up giving penalty or in jail for piracy.

  • Know what copyrights protect. Copyright law protects any original creation, and grants the holder of the copyright exclusive control over when, how, and by whom their work may be copied, distributed, or exhibited.
  • Know what isn't protected. Copyright law generally does not protect the underlying ideas of a creative work, and it does not protect facts. 
  • Don't confuse copyrights, trademarks, and other forms of "intellectual property." The term "intellectual property" itself has led to these very different things being confused with each other.
  • Learn about the public domain laws for your jurisdiction. "Public domain" is short-hand for "uncopyrighted", not "publicly distributed". 
  • Be creative. If ever you wonder whether a certain action would infringe on the copyright of someone else, the question to ask is: is this a creative work on my count, or am I simply drawing from the creativity of someone else?
  • Don't rely on "fair use". Called "fair dealing" in many jurisdictions, fair use is simply a guarantee that copyright laws do not infringe freedom of speech and make critical commentary impossible.

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
