Question: Are copyright laws religiously binding?
Answer: Yes. Leading contemporary scholars have ruled that copyright laws are legally and religiously binding on Muslims. Violation of copyright constitutes harming the copyright holder and the Prophet Muhammad (God bless him and give him peace) said, “Wrongs are darknesses on the Day of Judgment”.
