This is a very important topic in todays social media society. Most students don’t give much thought to legality when it comes to what they post on the internet. I would imagine this is true of any type of media that they use in school projects as well. I must admit I wasn’t aware of all the copywrite laws and how it effects what I can legally re-use in my class material. I just asumed most everythng requires permission to use so I have stayed away from republishing work I had found on the internet. After covering this material it’s nice to see sites like Creative Commons that helps to simplyfy these rules for us.
