America has some of the strictest copyright laws(almost anything besides criminal in nature is copyrighted) and the producers of content from America whether they be small time hobbyists or large firms are very protective over their IP rights. But so many persons located out of America that I spoken to, seem to base what they think is copyrighted or not on U.S. laws and not the laws of the country they are residing and producing the content in. In many countries the laws make it clear that something has to actually be promoting the arts or sciences. Whenever I mention the laws of their own country they tend to ignore me and not believe that I'm telling the truth that what they are producing is not copyrighted. Is this being caused by the defence in courts by MPAA,RIAA as well as so many DMCA takedown companies promoting u.s. copyright law to non-americans?
