Etudes

Ms. Gonzalez downloaded more than 1300 songs using the file sharing network in which Company BM owns copyrights for 30 songs. Company BM sued Person G for copyright infringement. According to Company BM, Ms. Gonzalez is liable for the copyright infringement. Ms. Gonzalez kept the songs without gaining permission from the person or the company that owns the original copyright which is illegal. In this case, she keeps the songs on her computer and here she does not have the right to do so, therefore a copyright infringement has occurred. Ms. Gonzalez suggested that it was permissible under the fair use principles; however, in order for it to be under the principle of fair use, personal use is not the non-profit use and as a result, it does not fall under fair use. To conclude, she is liable for the copyright infringement.
