Stanford Copyright & Fair Use - The Public Domain

Stanford Copyright & Fair Use - The Public Domain | K-12 Copyright Resources | Scoop.it

According to the U.S. Copyright Office, the public domain is not a place. A
work of authorship is in the “public domain” if it is no longer under copyright
protection or if it failed to meet the requirements for copyright protection.
Works in the public domain may be used freely without the permission of the
former copyright owner.

Can I backup my computer software? Yes, under certain conditions as provided by section 117 of the Copyright Act. Although the precise term used under section 117 is “archival” copy, not “backup” copy, these terms today are used interchangeably. This privilege extends only to computer programs and not to other types of works.  See also more information at http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-digital.html#sellbackups

Creative Commons

Creative Commons | K-12 Copyright Resources | Scoop.it
Creative Commons licenses provide a flexible range of protections and freedoms for authors, artists, and educators.  The idea of universal access to research, education, and culture is made possible by the Internet, but our legal and social systems don’t always allow that idea to be realized. Copyright was created long before the emergence of the Internet, and can make it hard to legally perform actions we take for granted on the network: copy, paste, edit source, and post to the Web. The default setting of copyright law requires all of these actions to have explicit permission, granted in advance, whether you’re an artist, teacher, scientist, librarian, policymaker, or just a regular user. To achieve the vision of universal access, someone needed to provide a free, public, and standardized infrastructure that creates a balance between the reality of the Internet and the reality of copyright laws. That someone is Creative Commons. (From Creative Commons website)
