Be careful! Even if the work doesn't have the "Copyright" symbol, it is still copyrighted. Copyright begins the moment the work is created. If copyrighted material is so common, how can anyone use material for education? Fair Use means copyrighted materials... can be used for educational purposes without the original author's persmission depending on:
-how it is being used
-if it for educational and not profit ($)
-only a small amount is being used
-the creator isn't losing money from the use

-news reporting
-research You decide... You create a mashup or remix of your favorite Lady Gaga songs to create a seemingly "new" song to post on YouTube to share via Facebook. copyright violation or Fair Use? You decide! You need to find a photograph or art/graphic for your presentation.

You use Google Images and copy and paste TWO = graphics you like the best. One has a "copyright" symbol while the other does not. Copyright violation or Fair Use?? Possible violation! First - check the copyright policy on the website where the picture was posted.

1) The music is transformed into a new work
2) You aren't making money
3) You aren't going to take away from the original artist (Lady Gaga's) profit You decide! You include the full-length version of a current pop song in your YouTube video with your original poem on-screen. You put the source of the artist at the end.

You burned a copy of the song from your friend to avoid paying for the song. Copyright violation or Fair Use? Copyright violation!
