Today we talked about what copyright is.
It is a really tricky concept to fully understand. We decided that, basically, copyright means that the creator of the photo/music/film/artwork/play/idea owns their creation. People who are granted permission to use their creations can do so and people who pay to use their creations are also ok.
We watched the following clip which helped us to understand some tricky concepts like public domain, fair use and copyright law.
After we watched the clip and had some great discussion, we had a go finding images with creative commons. This is when the creators of images have given their permission for people to use their creations.
Why do you think it is a good idea to use creative common pictures in your blog posts?
