Los Angeles Cyberpiracy Attorney
Helping Clients in Los Angeles Defend Against Criminal Cyberpiracy Charges
Cybercrimes, internet crimes, and cyberpiracy are serious criminal offenses in Los Angeles and throughout the State of California. Cyberpiracy is essentially a white-collar crime that a person commits over the internet and is quickly growing throughout the country. In some instances, it is known as cybersquatting. In addition to being charged with a cybercrime, the accused individual may also face a separate charge for the actual crime he or she allegedly committed, such as copyright infringement.
If you are facing criminal charges for cyberpiracy or some other cybercrime, a knowledgeable and skilled Los Angeles cyberpiracy lawyer at Anand Law Group, P.C., can assist you with your case and vigorously defend you against your criminal charge.
Cyberpiracy is a criminal offense that involves downloading and later distributing content from the internet, which is protected by copyright, without the content owner’s permission. Common examples of cyberpiracy include downloading and distributing software or music online without permission. Cyberpiracy can also involve holding and registering a desirable or popular domain name on the internet in order to sell the name to another person or entity. Finally, cyberpiracy includes trafficking or registering a similar or identical domain name to another person’s trademark in bad faith.
In cases of cyberpiracy, the alleged victim could civilly sue the accused individual under the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA). Also, in cases of some internet crimes, individuals who are convicted could face a prison sentence and/or fine.
