Given the fact that the author and I have similar concerns, this book was refreshing in the way that it looked at the history of law involving creations and their legal protection, pointing out the balance of concerns between allowing for some profit to original creators while also increasing what is in the public sphere to allow for the further creativity of others in such diverse areas as low-cost classic books for readers and sampling rights for rap musicians to signify over, all matters that have been threatened due to the decline of the public space of community that has taken place since the beginning of the 20th century. This short book of about pages is divided into five chapters and provides a history of copyright law as well as a rallying cry for those who are opposed to its abuse by the heirs and corporate holders of rights that originally belonged to creators. After acknowledgments and an introduction, the author begins with a look at copyright and American culture and the issues of ideas, expressions, and democracy 1. After this the author moves to a discussion of Mark Twain and his complex views on literary copyrights over the course of his career and his largely European perspective as he got older and more copyright-rich 2. The author then turns his attention to jazz and rap and the problem of copyright as it relates to music, spending a great deal of time examining self-plagiarism as well as sampling issues 4.

Copyright and Copywrongs Reflection The journey continues in week three of the Digital Citizenship course with a vast amount of content on the proper use of copyrighted materials. In the digital world we live in, access to copyrighted material is only a few clicks of the mouse away and because of this we may think it is easier to use what is already available.
We must think twice before we take this approach as this can be unlawful and at the very least unethical. I came into the course with a basic understanding of the need to cite my references when writing a paper and even when adding pictures or videos to my ePortfolio.
I even knew that I could cite my prior works in my new works. Admittedly though, I had very little knowledge on copyright protection, fair use, or creative commons. These subjects were all foreign to me and I did not even realize how much I did not know until I started reviewing the course content. The Copyright Act of provides rules and regulation regarding the use of the intellectual property of others.
The act provides details on the length of copyright protection and the protection given to it. While I previously thought intellectual property was covered forever, through the material covered this week, I now know that works created after January 1, are covered for a life plus 70 years. I also learned that works published prior to in the public domain currently have no copyright protection. In the chart created by Lolly Gasaway, there are additional rules regarding copyright, terms, and protection Gasaway, Understanding these rules are important, but equally important is the knowledge that these rules do not strictly prohibit you from utilizing these resources.
This is known as fair use. Fair use allows for restrictive use of copyrighted material when certain circumstances exist. These circumstances may include, but are not limited to, usage for non-profit educational purposes and the amount of content used from the copyrighted work Bailey, The Center for Media and Social Impact identifies five principles to aid in the use of copyrighted material in an educational setting. The first principle centers around using copyrighted material in media lessons.
The second principle allows for the use of copyrighted material when developing curriculum. The third principle allows for educators to share their developed media content with other educators so long as they have applied the principles of fair use when creating the material. Principle four grants students the use of copyrighted material for use in academic work. Lastly, principle five, developing audiences for student use, supports educators ensuring learners responsibly distribute their works that may contain copyrighted information Association of Research Libraries, The five principles help to build the basis of teaching and learning while using copyrighted material.
They also guide in the lawful and ethical use of copyrighted resources. Lastly, this week has taught me about creative commons, an organization which has worked to simplify and standardize the process for granting copyright permissions Creative Commons, There are four conditions of creative common licenses.
Attribution, Sharealike, Noncommercial, and NoDerivatives. These conditions combined in various ways constitute the common core licenses. Copyright protection, fair use, and creative commons might be viewed as standalone subject matter, but it is important to remember its importance in the world of digital citizenship. Using copyrighted material in an unlawful or unethical manner can leave a negative mark on your digital footprint.
Each week of content must be connected with the next week to complete the picture. I look forward to next week.

Copyrights and Copywrongs: The Rise of Intellectual Property and How It Threatens Creativity
View Citation summary Copyright reflects far more than economic interests. He argues persuasively that in its current punitive, highly restrictive form, American copyright law hinders cultural production, thereby contributing to the poverty of civic culture. In addition to choking cultural expression, recent copyright law, Vaidhyanathan argues, effectively sanctions biases against cultural traditions which differ from the Anglo-European model. In African-based cultures, borrowing from and building upon earlier cultural expressions is not considered a legal trespass, but a tribute.
