The ABC's of Copyright

When you create something, you own it. People need permission to use your work. With copyright, only portions of a work can be used. For motion media, you can use 10% or up to 3 minutes. For text resources, you can use 10% or up to 1000 words. For music lyrics, you can use up to 10% but no more than 30 seconds.

How much of a text, song, or video can be used?

What is copyright?

Copyright is a form of protection given to the authors or creators of original works, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic and other intellectual works.

What is safe to use?

Does copyright really matter for a school project?

When you create something, you spend time and energy creating the product and you are proud of the final result. As the creator of a particular work, one should have the right to control what people can and cannot do with your it. You would be upset if someone simply copied or even gained money by copying your final product. By handing in a finished product that contains some else's work, you are behaving dishonest and showing lack of appreciation and respect for the original creator.
