Copyright Issues


The World Wide Web is changing how we view intellectual property. It is critical that we teach our students that copying and pasting someone else's work is still plagarism. However, Web 2.0 tools, which allow collaborative writing and revision, blur the lines of who is the author of the work. Therefore, there is now a new kind of copyright called Creative Commons Licensing. Check out the links below for more information.

Creative Commons Licensing

Here is a link to Creative Commons which "provides free tools that let authors, scientists, artists, and educators easily mark their creative work with the freedoms they want it to carry." http://creativecommons.org
