The Digital Millennium Copyright Act is a landmark in our legal system, which defines a person’s responsibilities under the law. When a copyright owner files a lawsuit against a computer user for committing an act of piracy, the user can face liability under this act. The act defines copyright as the exclusive right to reproduce literary or artistic works and protect intellectual property of others. This includes software code and the results of work based on this code. This act was passed by Congress in 1998 and originally targeted the illegal distribution of music and movies online. The result of this act was that it significantly changed the way software developers were required to create their software products. As a result, it is imperative that you have the best possible knowledge about copyright law before you engage the services of a professional copyright lawyer.
