    Public Domain – belonging or being available to the public as a whole. Not subject to copyright.
    Orphan Works - they often lack sufficient information to identify their owners, identifying the date on which they would otherwise enter the public domain is also impossible.
  • 6. Using materials from the Internet
    Not everything is public domain
    - Once expression is committed to a
    tangible medium (and computer
    media is considered tangible),
    copyright protection is automatic.

  • 8. Creative Commons
    Websites have been established to help with the process of how your information will be shared with others.
  • 9. Individual Liability for Infringement
    means that you knew you were infringing and you did it anyway.
    Ignorance is not an excuse.
    One special provision of the law
    the good faith fair use defense- only applies if the person who copied material reasonably believed that what he or she did was a fair use
  • 10. What work is Protected?
