Recently, there has been much talk regarding who is deemed responsible when it comes to illegally downloaded content. With some internet providers under fire for allowing users to download illegal content, how can organisations protect themselves when employees download illegal content on their computers and ultimately, whose responsibility is it?

“Organisations need to play a delicate balancing game between empowering their employees to perform their duties as well as being innovative about how they can protect themselves from potential legal action resulting from an employee’s actions,” advised Kareem Tawansi, CEO of software development provider, Solentive Software.

“If an organisation is unaware of an employee’s copyright infringement, it should ultimately be the responsibility of an employee who has abused the trust of their employer. This rationale allows organisations to permit their employees with greater freedom knowing that if individuals exploit that freedom, the individuals will be responsible for their actions,” concluded Kareem.
