Systematic copyright theft forms part of a multi-billion dollar international industry. With the burgeoning of the electronic information industry today it has become an urgent issue. This book reviews all forms of copyright theft, from commercial to domestic, gathering the experiences of a range of organizations across book and electronic publishing. Book, electronic, database, audio, video, games and multimedia publishing are all considered along with the question of whether existing laws can effectively serve such a rapidly changing industry.;Copyright law is a complex area. This book is about the abuse of it, rather than the law itself. It aims to help publishing companies understand more about copyright theft in order to avoid it in at least some of its forms.
