Copyright Policy




"Under federal copyright law, the civil penalties for copyright infringement can be severe, including substantial monetary damages, injunctive relief, and liability for attorneys' fees incurred in prosecuting a case. If a court determines that the infringement was committed willfully, statutory damages of up to $100,000 for each sound recording infringed can be awarded. Even if not found to be acting willfully, a defendant can still be held liable for statutory damages of $500 to $20,000 for each sound recording copyright infringed. It is important to remember that these penalties apply even if money was not charged. In addition, criminal penalties may be imposed if someone willfully infringes a copyrighted work for commercial advantage or private financial gain. This crime is punishable by up to five years imprisonment, up to $250,000 in fines, or both. State civil damages and criminal penalties vary from state to state." -
