Copy Fraud
Subject: Law | Topics:

Copy fraud describes false copyright boasts by individuals or institutions with respect to content that is the public area. Such claims are wrongful because material that’s not copyrighted is free for many to use, modify and reproduce. Because copy fraud carries little or no oversight by government bodies and few lawful consequences, it exists using a massive scale, with numerous works in the public domain falsely classed as copyrighted.
