What does it mean?

Copyright laws were created to protect the owners and their intellectual property. When your idea becomes reality then it becomes copyrighted material. There are guidelines on how you can use someones intellectual property. These laws can restrict how we use music, photos, video and other sources of media in our class. So how do we use media and protect ourselves from copyright infringement? I am glad you asked!

Give Some Credit!

It is important to remember to give credit on any of the media that you use in your project. You should combine the credit and copyright information and always cite your source!
