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.
Both are stealing in my book.
