With the invention of OCR technology, we can fast and easily convert paper documents to computer editable files. The biggest concern is that OCR software can also be misused to convert books, novels and other hard printed art works to editable documents. This can encourage intellectual piracy.

Yes it does but as long as the author sees his writeup on another person's book or article then he or she can dispute that piece as his or her intellectual property. The problem with internet is that the law is different with every country.

Yes that's true. When it comes to intellectual piracy, some countries seem to be very strict and the other lenient. I think it should be an international law regarding this matter.

Yes, this is true but Copyright laws still remain valid and in effect should the OCR operator abusing the technology be ientified and prosocuted. OCR is more efficient, but it's kind of like old-fashioned photocopying and retyping the contect into a word processor.
