Interactive Media Legal & Ethics in Media Copyright is when somebody has made something and it is copyrighted to him or her. If anybody ells were to take this work and use it with out the author’s permission, they are breaching the copyright law.

An example of this happening in the media is that CTV (catch up TV) was streaming TV shows and films on their website. Broadcasters like ITV and Channel 4 proceed against CTV for the infringement of copyright.

If I was working in the interactive media industry I would be confined to only using images that I have sources myself. This means that I would need to take the photos and create graphics myself.
