Halacha - copying copyrights
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: can i copy something that has the copyright symbol
Answer:

If it is owned and produced by Jews, no you may not; though some are lenient. The main issue is whether Halacha recognizes ownership of intangible and intellectual property.

Even if the owner is not Jewish, there are serious concerns of Dina d'Malchusa and Chilul Hashem, and it is certainly not advisable.
