  • DisclaimerI am not an expert in Copyright, Fair Use, orPlagiarism.!Copyright & Fair Use info is based on U.S.Copyright Office !(U.S. Govt Info does not have copyright protectionso borrow at will but make sure you cite it). !Plagiarism info is based on Indiana UniversitysTutorial
  • ©opyrightFederal Law: Title 17 of the U.S. Code!Comes from the Constitution: "Congressshall have the power...to promote theProgress of Science and useful Arts, bysecuring for limited Times to Authorsand Inventors the exclusive Right totheir respective Writings andDiscoveries." (Article 1, Section 8)
  • ©opyrightIntended to promote progress in arts &sciences!While protecting creators "exclusive" rightsfor their lifetime plus 70 years (its actuallymore complicated than that: copyright chart)!After expiration work goes into "publicdomain" and can be used freely (seeplagiarism below)
  • Draw Something! !© Philip Bolton, Jr. aka pBj
  • Fair UseAn exception to the copyright laws"exclusive" rights to authors!If the "use" is "fair" then nopermission is necessary!Otherwise, you have to ask authors/creators for permission
  • Fair Use = FourFactors"purpose and character of the use" - is the use commercialnature or nonprofit/educational!"nature of the copyrighted work" - is it a creative work? isit unpublished?!"amount and substantiality" of the part used vs. the entirecopyrighted work!Market effect - "effect of the use upon the potentialmarket...of the copyrighted work" (section 107 of copyrightlaw)
  • Fair Use = FourFactorsThe more factors in your favor, the morelikely that it is a "fair use exception"!It is not a simple equation because its acomplicated legal issue

  • Direct QuotesWhy is there a slide for this? Youknow what a direct quote is.!Similar to paraphrasing, if you dontuse "" and an in-text citation youhave plagiarized.
  • In-text citation withReferences/Works Cited/BibliographyProper citation requires both in-text(aka parenthetical) citation!AND a full reference at the end ofyour paper!Why?
  • IUs Avoiding Plagiarism Flowchart
  • "SafeAssign™ is a plagiarism preventionservice, offered by Blackboard...Thisservice helps educators preventplagiarism by detecting unoriginalcontent in student papers. "!I will probably be using this service forsubmission of your final essays.
  • Plagiarism vs.CopyrightPlagiarism is different than copyrightinfringement!Copyright is a LEGAL issue involvingunsanctioned use of someones work;!Plagiarism is an ETHICAL issue involvingunacknowledged use of someones work!You cannot copyright an IDEA but you canplagiarize one.
