In Texas, all materials that are covered under a copyright are protected under federal law. The laws prohibit any unauthorized use of the materials without the owner’s permission. The only alternative is if the original owner sells the rights for the material to the individual. Otherwise, a contract must be secured before any of the content is used. Anti piracy protection helps the original owner protect their content.
Locating Unauthorized Use of Content
Anti piracy protection assists original owners in discovering all instances in which their materials were used. This helps the owner identify all offenders who have taken advantage of their creativity. The law allows the owner to file a claim against any offender who uses their content without explicit permission. Their claim can include every instance in which the content was used.

The notification informs the user that they must cease all use of the materials and provide repayment to the owner of any proceeds generated.
