  3. 3. Intellectual Property…problem<br />Even in its tangible forms, intellectual property can be difficult to understand and connect value to. <br />The complexity and confusion increases when the intellectual property is creative content that can be digitally distributed over the Internet.<br />Making something available on the Internet sometimes creates a disconnect between the content creator and the end user. (It’s so easy to cut-and-paste!)<br />

  7. 7. How long does copyright last?<br />For individuals: 70 years after death of creator.<br />For corporations: 95 years from first publication, or 120 years from its creation. <br />Define: “Public domain”<br />Media Education Lab<br />

  12. 12. So…to review…<br />For written work: be sure to cite your sources (tell where you got your information) either in the paper itself or by using a Works Cited page at the end.<br />For creative content that you are using from the web, apply the “Four Factors of Fair Use” and then cite your source, ask for permission to use, and/or use an official notice on the opening slide. <br />
