If we or our students publish our learning on the internet, we have to understand the implications of copyright.

We can't just take what we want from the internet and republish as our own - we need permission from the original creator.

Youtube has a 'Copyright School':

Creative Commons is an organisation that gives creators the ability to licence their work so that it can be legally shared, remixed and reused.

See our Scopus Netvibes tab 'Copyright free resources' for lots of CC copyright friendly resources.

Smart Copying is the official guide to copyright issues in Australian schools, with a Creative Commons information pack.

See the document Education: Copyright Basics from the Australian Copyright Council
