What does copyright mean to me?
Avoid copying ideas or text that belong to someone else. Instead, quote that person and give your own opinions about their ideas. Be sure to give them credit in a bibliography or a footnote.
Do not illegally download music or movies. You may face severe legal penalties and school discipline.
Avoid using copyrighted music and photos in your projects. Instead, create your own content or use Creative Commons or other similar sites to find the content you need. Be sure to include a bibliography.

Creative Commons is an organization that allows people to decide in advance how their intellectual property may be used by others.
Ask for permission
If you find content on the internet that you want to use for your project, check the website where you found the content. There might be copyright information already available. There also might be contact information where you could email the owner and get permission to use their work.
You would be surprised how many people will respond and allow you to use their content.
