IP, Copyright and Creative Commons

  1. 1. I.P., Copyright, CreativeCommons, Citations andYouGrade 7 2012
  2. 2. What is Intellectual Property?
  3. 3.  Anything you can create Intellectual Property becomes your intellectual property A drawing, a story, a picture, a dance – if you’ve created it then it is yours Much of what people create can be found online for free BUT that doesn’t make it yours to use.
  4. 4. What is Copyright?
  5. 5.  All your original work automatically has a “Copyright” That means no one else can use your work without your permission Copyright If you take someone’s copyrighted work without their permission, you can get in a LOT of trouble It’s like stealing For people like artists and musicians who make money from their work, this can be a real problem
  6. 6.  As the creator of something, you have a right to choose where it is shown and how it is shown Kids have the same rights as Copyright 2 adults BUT remember….once you post something you have created to a public site, you don’t always have control of how others use it THINK before you POST
  7. 7. Creative Commons
  8. 8.  Bill C-11 is waiting to pass – it will change the Canadian copyright laws with regards to education So……… In the meantime, when you can, look for a Creative Commons symbol DO NOT rip off artists! Learn how to properly cite all your sources (web pages, books, photos, music, etc)
  9. 9. Coming to a classroomnear you….(on Thursday)Citations and bibliographies…oh my!
