It is becoming easier to source, download and upload film, text, images and music. But does the fact that it is easy to copy mean that it is alright to copy?
"All Right to Copy?" is a resource designed to teach students about copyright, and how it impacts them as both users and creators. The resource includes a video, which follows the progress of two students as they create a website for a competition and deal with the various copyright challenges that arise. The written content includes copyright information, sample permission letters, useful links and a quiz.
"All Right to Copy?" can be used across a broad range of subject areas including English, Information Technology, Communications and all Arts subjects including Media, Visual Arts, Music and Drama. It is suitable for students aged 9-15 and can be completed within a day. It would be ideal to teach prior to the commencement of any creative project and when teaching about the online environment.
