There are different kinds of copyright violation. For instance, 
'unauthorized use' can be public performance (like over a PA system, 
radio, etc) of something which you don't have permission to do, or 
making copies of something of something for which you don't permission. 
And there is what I consider a worse infringement: using copyrighted 
material created by someone else and claiming it as you own , i.e. 
plagiarism.

Both are stealing in my book.
