Copyright infringement online, today in Albania, many organizations protect copyright, which authorizes the media based on some complex formulas approved by the Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Finance, etc.

Copyright infringement is the infringement of an individual’s intellectual property. The breaking certainly brings the theft of the original creation of an author in various fields by another person who, through this stolen product, also has personal benefits, without obtaining the author’s authorization. But to understand copyright infringement, we must first become familiar with the rights and limitations of a copyright holder. A person can copy and distribute an individual’s work without harming anyone, and you may not be held liable. On the other hand, it is also possible to subject yourself to a legal process, even if the work owner stole no intent or knowledge. A typical example of copyright infringement is that some creators post their work online for download on a set fee. But it is a violation of the rights of copyright download of a movie, television show, music, or e-book from a website not owned by the author who created it.
Website development also consists of the emergence of trademarks and services that have unique features. Music, movies, and books can be downloaded or viewed without physically visiting the shops or being sent to the shopper’s home. Similarly, cultural and sports events can be viewed online without going to a sports theater. Historically, music has been the first digital content available online. Intellectual property authors have rightly eaten the issue of counterfeiting and piracy as an obstacle to e-commerce. Piracy deprives creators of a fair reward, while counterfeiting distorts the market due to unfair competition between businesses. One of the primary means of combating piracy is the submission of legal offers by providers. In parallel, cross-border trade development should help increase authors’ income by attracting potential clients from all member states.
Since its creation and to this day, the Internet has been the fastest tool science has developed to create new communication links, unlimited access to information, and the personal use and exploitation of all the opportunities this option can offer.
However, such a necessary and speedy tool is undoubtedly one to bear in mind that it also brings with it a variety of problems, including immoral uses, which can even lead to violations of individual rights. Plagiarism, piracy on the web, downloading of music, films, etc., are considered not only an increasing phenomenon but also a concern for the authors of these works whose economic and moral interests, in this case, are affected. Piracy is not a legal notion but was born as a term to describe copyright infringement or fraud committed for profit.
Trade. Any copying, reproduction, distribution without the author’s authorization for commercial gain, causing them economic harm, shall be considered piracy.
