Theft of intellectual property, such as music and video recordings, has been commonplace for many years. During the 1970s and 1980s portable inexpensive recording devices made piracy of video and music relatively easy to accomplish. With the advent of the MP3 and MP4 formats utilized to compress large files for data storage and portability, piracy has flourished. Motion pictures, music, and data can now be easily accessed via small personal computerized devices such as cellular phones, tablets, and MP3 players. In addition, large files can be easily stored on digital flash drives often no bigger than a coin. This has enabled digital pirates to safely store movies, music, and data for transport to locations on a global scale.
In this paper, you must

Analyze the technical evolution of digital piracy including the impact of new digital formats such as CD, DVD, MP3, and MP4 to intellectual property piracy.
Explain the growth of innovative file sharing such as peer-to-peer (P2P) and Internet Relay Chat (IRC) and their impact on the methods for detecting and preventing intellectual property piracy.
Trace the evolution of legislation and organizations such as the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the Copyright Act of 1976, No Electronic Theft (NET) Act, and Directive 91/250/EEC/2009/24/EC designed to curtail and prevent digital piracy.
