Mobilizing the Information Society

Institutional and legal infrastructures are still subject to certain adjustments so that the development of information infrastructure and the move towards achieving an information society be advocated. In this chapter, we concentrate mainly on intellectual property rights, particularly on the copyright associated with content and software. Businesses, in several aspects of the development towards an information society, are greatly concerned with how the government may inappropriately proceed with decisions in unsettled areas that may still experience significant new developments. One of the common views is that protection may be perceived to be insufficient, or that ensuring penalties for infringements requires stronger procedures. The need therefore arises for parallel convergence in the institutional and legal aspects that are concerned with the management and promotion of rights in electronic information. We look into certain issues regarding piracy, counterfeiting, and other such violations.

Keywords:   intellectual property, counterfeiting, piracy, copyright, infringement penalties
