legal history of internet downloading
Legal History of Internet Downloading
  • The U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act deems that the act of copying copyright music is illegal.
  • It is legal for you to purchase a music CD and record (rip) it to MP3 files for your own use. Uploading these files via peer-to-peer networks would constitute a breach of the law.
  • The penalties for breaching the copyright act differ slightly depending upon whether the infringing is for commercial or private financial gain.
  • In Canada, downloading copyright music through peer-to-peer networks is legal, but uploading those files is illegal.

  • Napster was the first to present a program that combined a music-search function with a file-sharing system igniting the popularity of using a computer to find music.
  • The value of the pirate market was estimated at $4.6 billion in 2002, an increase of 7% on 2001.
  • The market share of legal music downloads remains tiny compared with sales of bootleg CDs and the traffic for music-swapping services.
  • More than 50 million pirate music discs were seized in 2002, up sharply from the 13 million reported in 2001. The vast majority of seizures were in South East Asia and Latin America.
