Piracy (otherwise known as copyright infringement) is the unauthorized use of copyrighted material in a manner that violates one of the copyright owner's exclusive rights, such as the right to reproduce and distribute a work to the public by sale, rental or other means of transfer and to make related, derivative works.
Piracy deprives authors and those involved in the publication of copyrighted material from being fairly compensated for their efforts. Additionally, piracy contributes to higher productions costs which ultimately results in higher textbook prices.
