Q & A- Copyrights

Postby smak786110 » 30 Oct 2006, 12:35

Question : Can I use cracked CD software?

§ Answer : If someone else has cracked the software, you can use it but you are not allowed to copy or burn it.

§ Question : A lot of Islamic books and software have copyrights on them. What is the Islamic view of copyrights? If I photocopy a book or duplicate a CD with a copyright am I doing a sin?

§ Answer : Copying or duplicating a book or software without their owner's permission is not permissible.

§ Question : What is the ruling on copying computer software, movies, audio CDs and other such things, which bear the wording “All Rights Reserved” or “Copyright”? Does this rule apply equally to Muslim made products and those made by individuals and or companies which are not Muslim?

§ Answer : Copyrights must be respected; it is not permissible to copy a product, if it is against law.
