Re: POST #4: Copyright
— by Roxine Hild Roxine Hild
After learning about copyright rules in this course, I am surprised to learn that a lot of people should perhaps be penalized for infringement.  I have seen students use music from their iPods as a background for slide shows or other multi-media presentations, using the whole song and presenting it to the public at graduation for instance.  

The use of the AEA Online materials that have copyright permission would certainly help those involved to be safe.  I can encourage students who are working on these types of projects to use appropriate materials or to ask permission.  Also, insisting that the MLA references be included would be one way that teachers could be sure that students understood that these rules exist for a reason.  I also think that a module on copyright law should be included in the computer literacy courses.
