Some examples (like myself have come on):

You buy a disc and make copies of it, it's legal?
But if you then sell the original disc on the block, you can then keep the copies you created?
Answer: no. You no longer have ownership of these.
My opinion: I know it is as I wrote above, but really, I think not so much on copyright when I'm on the internet.

You've purchased a movie and want to show it to your class, right or wrong?

Answer: no, not really, according to the manufacturer, do not show it but you would probably not be tried in court, this is an interpretation of the "law" from the seller's perspective.
My opinion: fixed really so, you've agreed to the terms of use when you bought film.
Regarding the storage of information, files, personal information and so on.
You may store works you have created, the copyright to and so on.
Actually, one must not copy some images (copyright) but we all have copied an image we thought was neat and so on.
This is not something I think about while I'm online, I find something I like checking it often if it costs so on. Is it free and you really want it, you often do not hesitate to copy it.
You can sell things you have ownership rights but you must give the buyer your copies, you may not sell freeware and the like.
My opinion: about the same as above, one can sell things on the block but it is in 99% of cases things you have purchased.
And then who would think about selling freeware? Indeed it is free for the download.

Consequences for breach of copyright issues.

copyright infringement can lead to being sentenced to a fine and / or imprisonment for up to 2 years.
How big fines you get depends of course on how serious the offense was, though the law states that "anyone who exploits a work should gällda compensation constitutes a reasonable compensation for the use." Has the crime additionally committed intentionally or with gross negligence as the fine shall be not only include the consideration for utilization, but also include compensation for the suffering or injury.
My opinion: This sounds very logical but as I said before, I have nothing against file sharing and such firm would not want to cause suffering to others, thinking anyway a bit if it hurts no one in the end.
