Give a Hoot about
What is copyright?
Copyright is a form of protection given to authors and others, such as composers and artists. Copyright law says that only the author of the work has the right to use it or give permission to others to use it.
by Mrs. Manjur for
her 6th grade class
Always try to be original.
Use your own words as much as possible.
If you use information from a source,
make sure you say where you got it. You can do this in a works cited page.
Put direct quotes that you use
from a source in quotation marks.
If you're not sure if the information you are using is copyrighted, include it in your works cited. It never hurts to cite your source!
Be very careful to include all the sources that you use in your work. Not giving credit to the author of a source is called plagiarism, which means stealing another person's hard work!
literary works (books)
musical works (songs)
dramatic works (plays)
choreographic works (dance)
and much more!
Have you heard of
Almost everything you find on the web is copyrighted.
Fair use allows us to use a limited amount of copyrighted work for educational and research purposes.
If you make a video using outside sources, you can show it to your class, but you cannot share it on the web for others to see. That would no longer be covered under Fair Use.
