Copyright 2.0 Show – Eps 272

From the reading from our digital textbook, writingspaces.org, I learned a lot about plagiarism, copyright violations, and fair use rights that I never knew. So what is the difference between plagiarism and copyright violations?   And what are the fair use rights? Let’s dig in.

Plagiarism. Plagiarism, as a generalization, is not illegal. It is a moral issue. Plagiarism is using text, pictures, music, etc. in a way that is not allowed to be used. That’s kind of vague. Keep reading…

Copyright Violations. A copyright violation is definitely a legal problem. The United States government has put laws into place that allow artists to control where and when their creations are being used. Did you know that the minute you save something on your computer or on your phone it is copyrighted? I did not!

November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold.
