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.
