Hello all. Recently, I found one of my relatives creating a music video for a “joint birthday party” that is coming soon. My relative implied that she gathered all the images from various internet sources (I also inferred that her music may be subject to copyright as well). I reminded her about the legality of copyright violation, but she insisted that “it is only a one time thing” and that not a lot of people are going to view it anyway. I, mostly out of cowardice and slightly out of the belief that I admonished her well enough, decided to leave the issue as it was. I told her that I was not trying to tell her what to do; I was just reminding her. But, this is where my dilemma comes.
I feel that, by just silently letting her go through with this, I am partaking in sin. I feel that I am morally obligated to report her (to whom, I am not sure). I also feel that I may be getting scrupulous again and should just leave it as it is. Should I remind them that it is copyright violation every time I find them doing this?
So, people of Catholic Answers, what is the moral thing to do? Should I report my relative or anyone else who violates copyright to the proper authorities (may someone please tell me the identity of the organization that handles this kind of thing)? Or, was what I did enough and I should just leave it be? I thank you all in advance.
