Digital piracy encompasses various unauthorized actions related to copyrighted materials, including movies, music, software, and digital content. These activities include, but are not limited to:

  1. Illegal Streaming: Broadcasting or viewing copyrighted content without proper authorization through online platforms. 
  2. Unauthorized Downloading: Acquiring copyrighted material from the internet without the permission of the rights holder. 
  3. Illegal Sharing: Distributing copyrighted works to others through file-sharing networks or peer-to-peer platforms. 
  4. Sale of Pirated Content: Selling or distributing counterfeit copies of copyrighted material, such as DVDs or software, for profit. 
  5. Use of Cracked Software: Utilizing software that has been tampered with to bypass licensing or activation requirements.

Piracy leads to significant financial losses for businesses and content creators. It undermines the value of intellectual property, reduces revenue, discourages creativity and innovation, and affects employment within industries like film, music, publishing, and software development.

Additionally, publicly posting images/videos of copyrighted material taken in theatres where videography is strictly prohibited and using pirated images/videos in any matter falls under copyright infringement which is an offense.

When you receive a copyright notice from BLOCK X, you are required to refrain from posting such infringing content in future. Failure to do so could lead to further legal consequences, such as your account being suspended or terminated, or even lawsuits. It’s essential to take the notice seriously and act accordingly.

Fair use is a legal doctrine that allows limited use of copyrighted material without permission for specific purposes, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research. However, fair use is complex and context-dependent, considering factors like the purpose of use, the nature of the work, the amount used, and the effect on the market for the original work. It’s best to seek legal advice when considering fair use. Please refer (blog) to know more on fair use of content.

If you receive a copyright strike by BLOCK X and you believe you have the right to use the content that was removed, you can file a counter-notice.
