What is Piracy?
Piracy is the unauthorized and illegal reproduction, distribution, or use of copyrighted content. Piracy is typically found in two formats: a counterfeit print textbook or digital files posted illegally online.
Why is stopping piracy important?
When illegal material is available, either in digital or print format, it affects a variety of individuals from being fairly compensated for their hard work. Counterfeit materials can also be dangerous for students, as no guarantee comes with pirated material, and it may be incomplete or inaccurate. Piracy drives up the cost for students and consumers of our products. By identifying piracy and reporting it properly, we can work together to mitigate the effects it causes, and allow our products to remain affordable.
Join in the battle against piracy by reporting it. We take every case of reported piracy seriously, and investigate each case thoroughly. The information you supply by reporting piracy is crucial in helping us identify the unauthorized and illegal reproduction, distribution, or use of our copyrighted content.
