In all honesty, the web makes it extremely easy to ignore copyright! As a result, I have been guilty of doing just that more often than not. Prior to taking this course, google was my best friend. I also liked youtube and a variety of other easy net trend sites. After the reminder offered in the copyright module, I was feeling somewhat guilty at the likelihood of my infringements. On the positive I have been thinking to myself what a tremendous relief it is to know that I can access clipart, audios, videos, newscasts, and much more through AEA, knowing that its all legal and moral. I was also victim to the myth that all copyrighted material contained the symbol of such, but learned within this class that is not the case! Additional new information I was presented with is that teachers do have legal rights to share materials within classrooms. It is good to know that advances in the web-based learning processes are taking shape to allow for use of copyrighted material, as well.
