    Just 'piracy' is enough; you also hear 'piracy on the high seas'. 'Piracy' is a process/operation, so again there's no need to qualify it, but could you give an example of ta sentence where you wanted to use this as the context could dictate the use of a certain word.

    Thank you

    "In spite of the international concern for the phenomenon of piracy, piracy's missions / processes / operations are increasing continously."


    And what about: historical empires or historic empires ?
