Copyright: BEE SECURE: no pointing the finger but a helping hand | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

In Luxembourg, every 7th grade secondary school class (pupils aged 12-14) participates in a BEE SECURE training session. For all other grades, BEE SECURE training can be organised on demand. On average, 500 training sessions are held each year. The topic of intellectual property online is emphasised within the sessions in a special way.

 

Although the Luxembourgish legislation on intellectual property has existed since 1975 and corresponds to the laws of the neighboring countries, lots of youngsters seem to have very little information about the topic, if any at all!

 

Obviously one of the subjects that concerns young people most is file sharing, especially regarding music files.

 

Although illegal file sharing hasn't officially been persecuted in Luxembourg until now, most young people are nevertheless unaware of the fact that they could get into trouble.

 

Hardly any youngsters know that music artists can sue them from every part of the world.

To teach without threatening

To teach without threatening | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

In this article, Ando Urbas, IT journalist, consultant of media and marketing, and trainer for the Tiger Leap Foundation’s ‘Smartly on the Web’ programme in Estonia, shares his views* on teaching copyright to children and young people:

 

“Teaching copyright at school should be done calmly and without emotions, on the contrary to some copyright organisations’ rhetoric, which balances on the fine line of good practice and legality.

Copyright, Plagiarism, and Digital Literacy

What is copyright?

 

Copyright gives people the legal right to decide how original work that they have created can be used once it has been published. Contrary to popular belief, a copyright notice does not need to be attached to a piece of work for it to be copyrighted – as soon as the work is published, then copyright applies.

 

In other words, aside from a few notable exceptions (some of which we will touch on later) somebody owns the copyright to pretty much everything that has ever been published on the Internet.

Andreas Kuswara's curator insight, February 27, 2013 11:09 PM

with the increase in mash-up content, the issues of IP such as this would need our attention and commonsense.

Media&Learning's curator insight, February 28, 2013 3:40 AM

Features, best practices, copyright, use and examples of content curation. Basically everything it is useful to know about content curation. Plenty of useful information.

Mary Dawson's curator insight, June 21, 2013 11:39 AM

I am very aware of the fact that I am using a digital curation site to highlight external resources about images and Copyright and therefore it seems sensible to highlight some of the pitfalls of this approach.  I note that the Scoop.it example does not come out of this too well!

Cidadania Digital – Helping kids to be better digital citizens/Copyright

Cidadania Digital – Helping kids to be better digital citizens/Copyright | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Being the month when we celebrate World Intellectual Property Day (WIPO), it’s the perfect time to dedicate some thought to intellectual property online and intellectual property rights. The fluidity of contents on the internet, and the sophistication of information and communication technologies, allow access opportunities never seen before, but alongside this is often a disregard for the rights of those who created the content.

 

This sometimes happens deliberately, but most of the time it is simply because the user doesn’t think about it!

 

In Portugal, in order to raise awareness on this theme, Microsoft, in a partnership with the Ministry of Education (both partners in the Portuguese Safer Internet Centre), created the Cidadania Digital website.

 

This resource offers a curriculum tool to be used by teachers with students in 8th and 10th grade on how to be a good digital citizen.

 

===> This includes using/sharing creative content, while respecting intellectual property. <===

Teachers on the safe side of the law

Teachers on the safe side of the law | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

It has always been the case that teachers collect content for their classroom activities. In Austria, there is a saying: “Teachers are collectors and hunters”.

 

They collect all usable content and hunt for the best bits in order to reuse it for their classroom activities. This, of course, has never quite complied with copyright laws. But in pre-internet times this was not a major concern as teachers’ materials were almost never published outside of the classroom.

 

Now, however, teachers’ ability to ‘hunt and collect’, and the boundless opportunities to share their material online, make it necessary to look for new strategies and at the same time raise teachers’ awareness about copyright issues.

 

Some schools in Austria have actually received cease-and-desist orders from lawyers for copyright violations, for example using copyright protected pictures on their websites.
