"Online piracy" is the practice of digitally downloading and distributing copyrighted content (eg, software , games, e-bookd, music and movies) without authorisation. Peru has a long history of IP piracy - it generates losses due to non-payment of royalties, counterfeiting and smuggling amounting to around $2 billion each year.
Protection against online piracy can be found in various Peruvian laws, including :
- the Anti- Piracy Law (No. 28289)
- Decision No. 486;
- the Copyright Law (No. 882);
- Decision No.351; and
- the Criminal Code.
