“Why is it important to respect intellectual property?

It is important to respect intellectual property for these three reasons:

  1. To promote creative communities and rich cultures. We must support creative work by paying writers, artists, musicians and designers for their work.
  2. To promote freedom of speech and expression. When individual creative people can make a living from sales of their work, they are free from the pressures of sponsorship by governments or large corporations.
  3. It is wrong to steal. It is immoral and illegal to steal other people’s property unless they give you permission to use it.”

Quoted from NSW Board of Studies.
