You should not copy and paste because every time you do you could have a chance of plagiarizing.
ethan Llamas's comment, May 22, 2013 8:09 AM

Appeals Court Agrees That Righthaven's Copyright Assignment Was A Sham, But Tosses Key Fair Use Ruling | Techdirt

Appeals Court Agrees That Righthaven's Copyright Assignment Was A Sham, But Tosses Key Fair Use Ruling | Techdirt | Be legal and fair | Scoop.it

This isn't a huge surprise, but in Righthaven's big appeal concerning the key issue over which it lost all of its cases -- whether or not it had standing -- has resulted in yet another huge loss for Righthaven.

 

The court basically agreed with every single other court that has ruled on this matter, noting that when Stephens Media "assigned" the copyrights to Righthaven, it really did no such thing. Instead, it merely assigned the bare right to sue, which you can't do under copyright law. Considering how some of our critics insisted that Righthaven would win this point on appeal,

 

I'm curious to see how they respond. The court basically agreed with all of the points that a bunch of district court judges had all pointed out: the Strategic Alliance Agreement (SAA) left all the power in the hands of Stephens, including ultimate control over every single one of the official rights associated with copyright law under section 106. Thus, it did not, in fact, assign the copyright, and Righthaven had no standing to sue.

12 Most Picture Perfect Ways To Ensure You’re Legally Using Online Photos

12 Most Picture Perfect Ways To Ensure You’re Legally Using Online Photos | Be legal and fair | Scoop.it
Attorney and social media writer, Sara Hawkins, snaps the 12 Most Picture Perfect Ways To Ensure You’re Legally Using Online Photos.

 

1. Did you take the photo or create the graphic?

2. Plagiarism and copyright infringement are not the same

3. Attribution does not make it right4. Ask and you may receive

5. Avoid all problems and use public domain images

6. Understand the Creative Commons license you use

7. Different uses come with different obligations.

8. Fair Use likely doesn’t mean what you think it means

9. Assume every image you find online is copyrighted

10. Your website, your liability

11. Making changes to a copyrighted image doesn’t make it yours

12. Just because other people do it doesn’t make it right

Copyright law is very complex but you don’t have to be a lawyer to understand the basics. When it comes to using images online, trust your instinct. If there’s any tinge of uneasiness then reconsider or do some research. In many ways, copyright follows the golden rule.

Copyright, What's Copyright?

A work is automatically granted a copyright at the moment of creation. Registering a copyright is not necessary. If you plan to sue someone for infringement, you will register copyright as part of that process.

John Dalziel's curator insight, April 13, 2013 2:23 PM

Sometimes learners get lazy and use the web in ways that are inappropriate in an academic setting - i.e. by plagiarising work from web sources.
Even though the benefits of the web far outweigh the risk of inappropriate use, as educators, we should strive to train our learners on acceptable web behaviour.
This includes the habits of summarising, quoting, and citing sources. Despite our best efforts, some students choose to bend/break the rules of fair use.
"The Plagiarism Checker", from dustball.com, is a free, simple, program for practitioners,learners. other stakeholders.

 

Practitioners: Just...
- paste in text from a suspect paper and The Plagiarism Checker will quickly perform a Google search of multiple portions of the submitted text in an effort to find matches.

 

Learners: Just...
- paste in text from your paper, before submission, and The Plagiarism Checker will quickly perform a Google search of multiple portions of the submitted text in an effort to find matches.

 

NOTE: The basic service is free to use. A more advanced and, in their words, accurate checker is available for $8/month.

 

NOTE: Papers are not be stored for any purpose. Some other sites do make a copy of the paper.

Anticipating Today's Hearing on Copyright Reform | Marvin Ammori Blog

Anticipating Today's Hearing on Copyright Reform | Marvin Ammori Blog | Be legal and fair | Scoop.it

 

In late April, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) announced he intended to tackle copyright reform over the summer. Later today, the Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Intellectual Property will hold its first hearing to address the subject, entitled “A Case Study for Consensus Building: The Copyright Principles Project.”

 

Today’s hearing will be worth watching, and could mark the beginning of efforts to enact meaningful reforms to our copyright system.

 

Congress has seemed reluctant to tackle copyright issues since the widespread blowback it received in 2011 and 2012 over SOPA and PIPA, controversial copyright legislation that many argued went too far to enforce copyright protections.

 

Already there’s been a great deal of speculation as to how the Judiciary Committee will approach copyright reform. Mike Masnick at Techdirt, who extensively covered the SOPA / PIPA bills, expressed cautious optimism about these hearings, and saw the subcommittee’s selection of witnesses for this first hearing as a promising sign that it wants to handle reform in a prudent manner.

 

Still, there has been a certain level of skepticism about the hearing. Mark Hachman at ReadWriteWeb expressed concern that Chairman Goodlatte’s past support for SOPA and CISPA means the Judiciary Committee as a whole will be unable to strike the right balance between ensuring compensation for copyright holders and ensuring innovation in new technologies and services continues, and will favor the copyright community’s interests over others.

 

David Lowery, a musician of Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven fame, wrote in Politico that he fears the views of the actual content creators will be ignored in this hearing. He argued that the perspective of the artists is crucial to meaningfully addressing problems in the copyright system and developing solutions to them, adding that he expects Chairman Goodlatte to include that community in future hearings.
