Thing 10

Copyrighting has become interesting with the current availability of information. Very different from the pen and parchment world. I do not know that I have paid enough attention to notice a "CC" on a web page before.. but I will now be looking for it.

It's one thing to view other individuals work... and another to modify their original work. Yet it is even another to modify and pass it off as your own or just share the modification with many others.

It can all be very confusing, but with creative commons spelling out the allowable intent of any project, picture or paper, it makes it clearer as to how far you can go to use something in the masses or as yours.

But again... the Internet has desperately changed the face of copyright and copy protected!

  1. It seems a little like what we've been doing in education for years--using something another teacher created and modifying it to fit our needs. We just haven't been giving credit so this works great! Everyone's happy!
