COPYRIGHT and Fair Use

for 1st graders

What is Copyright?

*You can use it if they say it is ok.

*You do not like it if people copy you, so do not copy them without asking!

*If you make it, it is yours and no one else can copy you!

*Make sure to tell people the title and the author if you borrow it.

*Just because you see it on the Internet does not mean it is yours.

*Ask your teacher if you do not know if you can use it or not!

What is Fair Use?

*You can use it at school to learn without asking!

*If you use it, just tell who made it.

*True things we can use. Things people make up, we can not use.

*We can use pieces of things, but not the whole thing. Example: a movie
