Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 COPYRIGHT not copywrong Copyright is a set of rules that dictate the terms of use of another person's creative work. Works may vary, and can be physical in form (like a poster, painting, or movie) or abstract (in the form of music, speech, dance, or general movement). Copyright can be transferred from person to person (as long as it is in writing), but generally expires 50 years after the owner's death. After production of a creative work, copyright already exists for it. When copyright is broken, the official owner can take legal action, often in the form of monetary fines. There are plenty of excepts to copyright though, which professionals and students must be aware - "Fair Dealing" for example, allows the use of copyrighted material for educational purposes. There are still restrictions on this, if you don't know what can and cannot be used, ASK! Creative Commons (CC) promotes a culture of sharing, often just requiring the user to attribute the work to the creator. There are many different types of Creative Commons copyright, each possessing a scope of restrictions and possibilities.Meanwhile, Proprietary Copy-right (C) reserves exclusive rights and requires authorization in the form of a license or legal consent. Digital Locks can be used to prevent others from stealing creative works; these are not fail safe though; and are easily bypassed through third party intervention. Breaking of digital locks are prohibited by Canada's Copyright Modernization Act. Teachers, students, and all professionals must model appropriate copyright use. Do not plagerise (posting someone else's work as original content). Be ethical and cite sources.
