This community is open to all LJ users who are interested in the matter of copyright. We welcome discussions and questions on what copyright is all about, why it's important, and how we can work towards promoting it in the Internet community.

It is important to note that while most of us are eager to learn and more than happy to share what we know, we will never replace the services of a real lawyer. If you have any serious business involving you and intellectual property law, please consult a lawyer.

It is also important to note that this is not a community devoted to "outing" copyright infringment. This is a community that exists to help with education and understanding of copyright law and the issues surrounding it. We suggest that you don't post publicly the names or contact info to infringing parties. However, if you absolutely do feel the need to do so for some reason, please don't use this community as your forum.
