The Internet is a big neighborhood with millions of backyards. Often the gates are wide open and we can walk right in and take what we want. If you like your neighbor's picnic table, just take it...or should you?
With increased sharing of projects via the internet, the quick grabbing of images and videos, and the ease of copying and pasting, a knowledge of copyright for teachers and students is essential.
