Copyrights and wrongs
The RIAA vs. the EFF: who will redefine copyright for the digital age
US copyright law gives rightsholders the following exclusive rights over their work:This is interesting, so make sure you read the whole article.
* The right to reproduce the copyrighted work;
* The right to prepare derivative works based upon the work;
* The right to distribute copies of the work to the public;
* The right to perform the copyrighted work publicly; and
* The right to display the copyrighted work publicly.
First, it wants to argue that illegal downloaders are infringing on the copyright owners' exclusive right to reproduce their copyrighted work. As the very word "copyright" suggests, the rightsholders' exclusive right to make copies of a work is at the very heart of copyright law, and the EFF in fact concurs with the RIAA on this issue, holding that P2P downloading is technically copyright infringement from a legal standpoint.
More controversially, though, the RIAA would like to argue that those who upload copyrighted works onto P2P networks are infringing on rightsholders' exclusive right to distribute copies of the work to the public. This argument that a digital transmission of a work that results in a copy on the other end equals distribution is where things start to get really, really interesting.
