About copyright infringement
Your eircom connection allows you to access music from virtually every corner of the globe. But with a world of music at your fingertips it is important to be mindful of the rights of the artists and publishers who have produced the music that you like to enjoy.
The vast majority of music files are protected by copyright and while it may be okay for you to store them personally on your computer for personal use, it is unlawful to share those files without the copyright owner's permission. By illegally downloading and sharing copyrighted material you run the risk of having action taken against you.
There are alternative services available where you can enjoy music online legitimately, including eircom’s new on-line music service www.musichub.ie, the first on-line music service in Ireland to provide streaming as well as downloading options. As an eircom broadband customer you are entitled to this streaming service for FREE as well as exceptional value on downloads which are up to 75% cheaper than iTunes. That's access to millions of tracks and thousands of artists free on-line only with eircom.
