Copyright infringement: What is it?

Staying safe on the internet

We would like to remind you about the serious consequences of copyright infringement on our broadband network.

Copyright infringement refers to the unauthorized use of someone else’s protected material, such as music, movies, software, or any other type of creative work. This includes downloading, distributing, or sharing the material without the permission of the owner or the legal authority to do so.

Are there laws in place to protect internet users?

Copyright laws were established to protect the rights of creators and owners of the content and ensure that they are fairly compensated for their work. Engaging in copyright infringement is illegal and can result in legal action and significant financial penalties. By being aware of the consequences and choosing to use only legitimate sources for your content needs, you can avoid participating in copyright infringement and support the creative industry.

What you can do to stay safe on the Swoop broadband network

  1. Secure your Wi-Fi network: Use a strong password and encrypt your network to prevent unauthorized access.
  2. Monitor network activity: Regularly check the devices connected to your network to ensure that none of them are engaging in copyright infringement.
  3. Educate others: Make sure that anyone who uses your network is aware of the consequences of copyright infringement and the importance of using only legitimate sources for downloading content.
  4. Use parental controls: If you have children, consider setting up parental controls to restrict access to websites and services that may contain copyrighted material.

By taking these steps, you can protect yourself from being held responsible for copyright infringement committed by others using your network.
