Elementary Copyright Barbara Benford What is copyright? Laws that protect the work of people like Authors stories, poems, letters Artists drawings, paintings, photos Composers music, recordings, videos Web designers websites from being used without their permission.

Example You find my drawing on the Internet and think it is just right for your homework on shapes, with a few changes. So you copy and paste it into your work. .

You cant use my work without my permission! How is something protected? If you make something that is your own idea and work, no one can use it or change it without your permission. Thats the law! You can decide to make copies, give it away, hang it up, or make changes. It is

your intellectual property. If you have permission, you can use the picture or change the picture. But you need to tell who made it first. Drawn by Ms. Benford November 2009

What does that mean? If you want to use the words or pictures of someone else you need to have their permission. AND you need to give them creditsay where you found the pictures or words.

We call it citing your source. Cite a Source When you use a book or website, you need to list the author and title or the

website. Example: Tigers by Helen Frost Tigers online by Busch Gardens http://www.seaworld.org/infobooks/Tiger/home.html Fair Use

When you are using pictures or information for school reports, you can use it without asking the author for permission IF You remember to CITE the SOURCE! You can do this for school reports but not if you are trying to make money. If you have a question, ask your librarian or teacher.

Copyright Protects your work Protects the work of other people Use it wisely
