Rights owners have been recently provided by the FBI an authorization to use (under specific conditions) an Anti-Piracy Warning Seal of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which was widely announced in the news.
The main purpose of the seal in question was explained as to make stronger the already strong impact of a warning shown on copyrighted media, which deals with the potential consequences of copyright violation. It was also expected to underline the involvement of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in this particular kind of investigation. If you want it by simpler words, the seal was given to make the warning even scarier.
According to a pilot program of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the members of 5 entertainment and software industry outfits have appeared to be able to request an approval from the outfit to use the above mentioned seal, while the outfit has been administering the entire process and record-keeping for the last eight years. That’s why a decision was taken that the general authorization should replace the pilot program in question in order to allow a larger number of individuals and organizations to use the seal of the FBI.
Of course, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has issued a regulation, which specifies precisely the conditions under which the image of the above mentioned seal could be downloaded and used. Meanwhile, the FBI made the image of the seal available on its own website for everyone to see. However, as you can see above, it didn’t take much time for the netizens and pro-piracy activists to create a number of other seals, which have already become just as popular as the seal imposed first by the media moguls. It’s up to you which seal to use, though!
