Does watching content online through various internet live-streaming channels infringe copyright?



One must exercise caution in relation to content available on the Internet. It is easy for almost anybody to make content available on the Internet. Some of these are legitimate copyright owners or their licensees. Others, however, are not. For example, there are those who steal broadcast signals from authorised sources and transmit them online illegally or who stream content without the consent of the copyright owners.  When you watch content online via streaming technology, a temporary copy of the programme is made on your computer. If the programme is communicated without the copyright owner's consent, then the temporary copy on your computer could be an infringement of copyright.  In view of this, you should be careful and check the legitimacy of the source before watching content available online.
