What is Copyright and Plagiarism?

Copyright and plagiarism update–new law  April 8, 2017 – 10:31 pm
What Is Self Plagiarism and

Canada’s arts –performing and written –include a strong streak of satire and parody. Something I admire and enjoy. I learned tonight that Canada modernized its copyright law November 7, 2012. Inba Kehoe, Copyright officer for the University of Victoria, spoke to Victoria Writers Society tonight. The fair dealing part of copyright law was expanded to include use in education, yes, but also for satire and parody. Yay!

But the rules around how many words are included in fair dealing in Canada remain complicated. (The term fair use is employed in the U.S.) Kehoe kept referring to no more than 10% as a good guideline for quoting screenplays, movies or literary works from novels to poems. Attribution required. She also repeatedly recommended getting permission if any more than that is used. The law in Canada is that the author holds copyright to the work through his lifetime and the author’s estate has it for 50 Years after death, said Kehoe.

What does this mean to writers? We are better off relying on our own words anyway, our own thinking. Use a bit of someone else’s words if they are so clever or key to your piece they cannot be replicated. Attribute. Cut the extra. Assert your own thoughts.

Use of trade/sevice marks

Is protected by copyright law, except under "fair use" which includes commentary, parody, news reporting, research and educational purposes.
i don't think registering a domain including a copyrighted mark "bestbuy" would be justified under fair use if all you're doing is airing dirty laundry. depending on the content of your site, it may classify as parody. be careful, however. if you stat...ite that is factually incorrect that causes confusion to their customers or damages their reputation, best buy will have every right to sue you for defamation.
however, i agree with the previous poster. doing this would be childish. if you have a complaint about bestbuy due to an incident in which you believe you were treated poorly or unfairly, address these concerns directly to best buy.

T... in just 136 at-bats in 50 games. This season, he is batting .182 in 22 at-bats for the Padres.
He is a career .240 hitter with 47 homers and 165 RBI in 459 career games for Boston, Texas, San Francisco and San Diego.

Damn, we never get dick for our castoffs
"The New York Post is reporting that Ramsey
could become a Jet within days. The Jets and Redskins
have been discussing a trade, and word is New York
will send Washington a fifth-round pick in April's
draft as well as a possible conditional pick in 2007.
After initially seeking a second-round pick for
Ramsey, the Redskins have lowered their demamds.
Ramsey, a first-round pick in 2002, has become the odd
man out in Washington. Mark Brunell wrestled the
starting job from Ramsey early last season and Jason
Campbell is being groomed to eventually take over."

Write a letter

Write a letter to the credit reporting agency (Experian, Equifax or Trans Union most likely) that is reporting this item. In polite, businesslike terms, tell them your name, date of birth, and social security number, and that the judgment is your ex, not you. Ask them to investigate and then to remove it promptly.
Mark it up for 60 days. If you don't have a resopnse, write again, with a copy to the Federal Trade Commission.
Wait another 60 days. If no response, you'll want a "consumer law" attorney.
