What are the effects of digital piracy and what can be done about it?

Digital piracy is the digital use, distribution, or reproduction of any piece of work protected by copyright law without the copyright holder's permission. Despite breakthroughs in streaming services in recent years, peer-to-peer file sharing still poses a serious threat to copyright protection law. With a significant proportion of computer users engaging in piracy globally, copyright infringement still has a massive negative influence in music, film, literature, software development and many other fields. What problems does piracy raise and what solutions are there to these problems?

Lack of international cohesion

Copyright and the legal protections are already in place to protect creators from having their ideas and revenue stolen in this way, however punishment for infringement of copyright law still varies on a case-by-case and country-to-country basis. However there have been efforts to address this, in 2011 the US, EU and Japan signed the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (or ACTA) requiring all states to punish infringement cases with incarceration or fines, and obliging them to actively police copyright infringement cases. Although some agreements are in place to protect copyright they are far from comprehensive, and jurisdictions that are not party to one of the few agreements on the issue generally view enforcement of copyright as the responsibility of the copyright holder. Copyright protections exist; they just need more countries and people to take them seriously.
