An infringement is a minor offense that involves breaking a rule or a law. If your sister takes a chapter from your book and publishes it as her own, you could sue her for copyright infringement.

An infringement can result in legal penalties if you’re breaking a law, as in the case of a copyright infringement or a patent infringement. An infringement can also be a violation of a rule or an agreement that applies in a specific situation. In that case there are no legal consequences, but there are still penalties. If the referee sees an infringement of the rules during your soccer game, he’ll penalize your team by awarding your opponents a free kick.


Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who is also in Davos, hinted at action against China, saying U.S. trade authorities were investigating whether there is a case for taking action over China’s infringements of intellectual property.

"Have you heard that our pair of police officer fish Officer Nancy and Officer John arrested Gene Scallop for an attempt to sell photos of the beauty Quinn of Bikini Bottom, Princess Mindy?" Asked Barnacle Boy.
"Yes, I have heard but this is strange. For an attempt to sell photos of the beauty Quinn of Bikini Bottom, Princess Mindy?" Answered Mermaid Man.
"No, it is not strange. This despicable criminal Gene Scallop tried to sell photos of Princess Mindy without her consent. Poor beauty Quinn of Bikini Bottom didn't know at all about photos taken without her consent and sold without her knowledge." Answered agitated Barnacle Boy.
"Evil! Evil!Evil!" Exclaimed Mermaid Man three times.
