With the introduction of the internet, music distribution and publication became a lot easier, the traditional modes of distribution and publication quickly became outdated. However, a major challenge that the internet brought with it is the easy access to content. Music can now be accessed by anyone anywhere in the world. Copyright owners of musical content now have to deal with unauthorised copying and distribution of their songs on the internet. The term "piracy," as used in this article, refers to the illegal copying and distribution of proprietary content such as software, music, or movies.
