Content Theft, Internet Privacy, Creative Commons
Copyright infringement is when you copy or use someone else's work without permission. Includes the unauthorized or unlicensed copying of a work subject to copyright (google). Content theft is when your stealing a content that does not belong to you. Creative commons is when you have the permission to use and share the work. It's a nonprofit organization that spread the creative works for everyone to use legally for free. Taking stuff off the internet without permission is not right because that is their work that they have copyrights to. For example, some people worked really hard for it and have spent their own time getting it done. So they should take the credit for it. By taking other people's work or credit, we are not only hurting the person with the copyright but also all the other people like writers and artists who are losing their jobs because they are making less money due to copyright infringement. This leads to less artworks and entertainments produced for us to enjoy. Instead of ''stealing'' other people's work, we could use creative common sites to get what we need for free.
