    Online etiquette is now ingrained into our various cultures, and rightly so, although etiquette in technology is a fairly recent concept, it has become a social code of network communications, guidelines for communicating over social networks, and the code of practice.

    A colloquial portmanteau of social networking over mailing lists, blogs and inter-active forums, by means of developing norms that remain in state of flux and vary from community to community.

    The thorny subject of plagiarism, in its definition of wrongful appropriation, publication stealing and the misrepresentation of the author’s original language, thoughts, ideas and expressions for financial gains.

    Which does not apply to the use of a sentence or a paragraph attributed to the original author, and the writer/readers interpretation of the ideas that are generated.

    The legal aspects of plagiarism are regarded as theft under the international laws, which encompass academic dishonesty and scholarly fraud, a breach of journalistic ethics, how old fashion does that sound.

    Extreme cases of plagiarism and copyright infringements which have been identified in academia have led to Crown Court Cases, as the violation of the moral rights of the original author.

    In the defendant’s defence the cross-pollination of ideas is normally used, after a certain period the copyrights cease to be law, as the Classic writings of the 17th, 18th, & 19th century are there for all to use and interpret in a modern idiom.

    Copyright Infringements :

    Colloquially refer to as ‘piracy’, the misuse of works protected by copyright laws, without the permission of the creator, thereby infringements under the Inter-national Law System, encompassing the reproduction, the distribution, the display or the production of protected work, or to make derivatives works.

    The copyright holder is typically the work’s creator, or a publisher or other businesses where copyright is applied, copyright holders routinely invoke legal and technological measures to prevent and penalise copyright infringements.

    Copyright infringement disputes are usually resolved through direct negotiations, a notice to take down certain processes, or litigation in a Civil Court, egregious or large-scale commercial infringements, especially when it involves counterfeiting, is sometimes prosecuted via the criminal justice system.

    Shifting public expectations, advances in digital technology, and the increasing reach of the Internet have led to widespread, anonymous infringements that copyright-dependent industries now focus on individuals who seek and share copyright-protected content online.

    Estimated of actual economic impact of copyright infringement vary widely  and depend on many factors, nevertheless, copyright holders, industrial representatives, and legislators have long characterised copyright infringements as both piracy and theft, – a very emotive language that United States & British courts now regard as pejorative or otherwise very contentious.

    Copyright :

    As a type of intellectual property that grants its creator of an original creative work the exclusive rights to determine whether and under what conditions it may be copied and used by others, usually for a limited term of years, hence, a legally binding contract. Copyright is intended to protect the original expression of an idea in the form of creative works, but not the idea itself.

    Hence, the appendage of ‘isms’, a copyright is subject to limitations based on public interest considerations, such as the fair use doctrine enforced in the United States & the British Isles.

    Some jurisdictions require ‘the fixing’ of copyrighted works in a tangible form, it is  often shared among multiple authors, each of whom holds a set of rights to use or license the work, and who are commonly referred to as right-holders, these rights frequently include reproduction, total control over derivative works, the distribution of their material, public performances and the lawful moral rights, such as attribution.

    Copyrights can be granted by public law and in the case considered as ‘territorial rights’, this means that copyrights granted under law of a certain country or state, do not extend beyond the territory of that specific jurisdiction, hence, the translation of author’s work into other languages, but the clause in the initial contract can mean royalties paid to the creator.

    Copyrights of this kind can vary from country to country on native-procedures applicable when works of literature cross national boundaries, where perhaps, national rights are inconsistent.

    Typically, the public law duration of an author’s copyright can expire after 50 or 100 years after the author’s death, depending on the jurisdiction, some countries require certain copyright formalities to establishing copyright, others recognise copyright in any completed work, without formal registration.
