  2. 2. Definition of Copyright <ul><li>A &quot;copyright&quot; is actually a &quot;bundle of rights&quot; that the creator of a work is entitled to control if the work is &quot;an original work of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression.&quot; This means that in order to be entitled to copyright protection, the work has to be something you created (and didn't copy from another work) and set down in some physical form, like in writing, on videotape, in a sound recording, in a computer program or on a computer screen. The &quot;bundle of rights&quot; that are included in copyright are the right to: (1) distribute the work, (2) reproduce (or make copies of) the work, (3) display the work (for example, a painting that you want to allow a museum to publicly display), (4) perform the work, and (5) create  Derivative Works  based upon the original work.

  5. 5. Ten Myths About Copyright http:// www.templetons.com/brad/copymyths.html <ul><li>1. &quot;If it doesn't have a copyright notice, it's not copyrighted.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>2. &quot;If I don't charge for it, it's not a violation.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>3. &quot;If it's posted to Usenet it's in the public domain.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>4.  &quot;My posting was just fair use!&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>5. &quot;If you don't defend your copyright you lose it.&quot; -- &quot;Somebody has that name copyrighted!“ </li></ul><ul><li>6. &quot;If I make up my own stories, but base them on another work, my new work belongs to me.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>7. &quot;They can't get me, defendants in court have powerful rights!&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>8. &quot;Oh, so copyright violation isn't a crime or anything?“ </li></ul><ul><li>9. &quot;It doesn't hurt anybody -- in fact it's free advertising.“ </li></ul><ul><li>10. &quot;They e-mailed me a copy, so I can post it.&quot; </li></ul>

  13. 13. Attribution <ul><li>Is the requirement to acknowledge or credit the author of a work which is used or appears in another work. Attribution is required by most copyright and copyleft licenses.    </li></ul><ul><li>Simply crediting the originator of your material doesn't protect you against being sued for violating copyright. It can be a factor that shows that you thought you were acting honestly and in good faith, and it can also help to convince the person you're taking from that your use is not a problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Even beyond issues of copyright, it's also good manners (and good self-defense) to attribute information to its proper source. You would want others to properly attribute information you report back to you? </li></ul>

  15. 15. Copyright in the classroom     <ul><li>Now that the internet is used for research, it is now even easier to plagiarize.  Teachers need to teach students how much information they can use from a website and how to cite the website, book, or other materials that they are using.   </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.alpine.k12.ut.us/depts/media/elemlessons_rev/m8-legal_issues/lesson6plagiarism.html contains a great lesson plan for middle school students.   </li></ul><ul><li>  Copyright Awareness Week-teachers from all subject areas should teach students basic concepts about copyright. </li></ul>
