Copyrights/ Digital Responsibility/ Rules of Digital Media/

Copyright is...

"a form of protection grounded in the U.S. Constitution and granted by law for original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression. Copyright covers both published and unpublished works." -All About Copyright UCLA

Digital Responsibility

Just as in the American Constitution where there is a Bill of Rights, there is a basic set of rights extended to every digital citizen. Digital citizens have the right to privacy, free speech, etc. Basic digital rights must be addressed, discussed, and understood in the digital world. With these rights also come responsibilities as well. Users must help define how the technology is to be used in an appropriate manner. In a digital society these two areas must work together for everyone to be productive (Ribble, 2015).

Copyright and Fair Use
"People's writing, art work, videos, and images can be inspiring but they are also easy to take without thinking twice. When people treat the internet like a free for all legal and ethical issues can arise. That's why it is important to know about copy rights and fair use, so you can learn to give credit where credit is due."-Common Sense Media Education
