COPYRIGHT AND MEDIA PRESENTATIONS<br />To avoid plagiarism, everything used in media presentations must be attributed to it’s source.<br />There are limitations as to how much of a song or film can be used (10%), so those guidelines must be followed.<br />It is okay to use information for instructional purposes under the “Fair Use” principle, but the presentation that was created cannot be re-posted or re-distributed outside of the classroom.<br />For instance: If information is taken from the Internet to be used for a project in the classroom, the project cannot be reposted on the Internet. <br />
