         <!--INFOLINKS_ON-->
         <p>Copyright infringement is a very serious issue that is
plaguing the modern world. Many individuals engage in piracy unknowingly
because they have got used to downloading things for free on the
internet. However, there is no difference between this form of piracy and
any instance of petty theft. Piracy is a serious issue and it has serious
consequences. There is an entire industry of individuals who are affected
by piracy; the men and women who have worked hard to create the materials
that are being pirated are the ones that suffer as their income stream is
severely jeopardised by this phenomenon. Piracy in all of its
manifestations is something that needs to be completely eradicated from
the world we live in.<br>
<br>
