DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

Know your rights as a creator!

Have no fear! The Copyright Legal System is here!

A law that protects your control over the creative work you make so that people must get your permission before they copy, share, or perform your work.

Piracy, Plagiarism, Public Domain and Fair Use

PIRACY - Stealing copyrighted work by downloading or copying it in order to

keep, sell, or give it away without permission and without paying.


PLAGIARISM - Copying, “lifting,” or making slight changes to some or all of someone

else’s work and saying you created it.


PUBLIC DOMAIN - Creative work that’s not copyrighted and therefore free for you to use

however you want


FAIR USE - The ability to use a small amount of copyrighted work without

permission, but only in certain ways and in specific situations
