Copyright and Creative Commons

I found this week’s reading chapters really fitting. I’m taking media law right now and we just happened to go over copyright this week as well.

We’re lucky to be students because under “Fair Use” we canĀ use some copyright for class since it’s for a nonprofit educational purpose. But that’s also where ethics comes in. While we can use it, ethics encourages us not to. That’s where creative commons comes in.

I didn’t know this before but (cc) allows the creator of the content to allow others to freely use or adapt the original work into something new. So if you’re looking for a free image to use or you want to mix a cool new track, creative commons is something to look into.

Get Creative!
