What IS Copyright?
Copyright is the government's way of protecting the owner of the item's rights. They put a little C in a circle (as seen -->) that tells people the item, music, video, or movie cannot be sold, remade, reproduced, or shown without the copyright owner's consent.
Copyright infringement is the ignoring of a copyright. This takes place when someone decides not to care about a copyright, not site the source, or commits Piracy.
