Copyright: BEE SECURE: no pointing the finger but a helping hand

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.

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.

Iran expected to permanently cut off Internet by August

Iran expected to permanently cut off Internet by August | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Country's minister of information and communication says national intranet will create a 'clean Internet.' 

 

Millions of Internet users in Iran could soon be permanently cut off from the Web, social networks, and e-mail.


In a statement released last week, Reza Taghipour, the Iranian minister for Information and Communications Technology, announced it plans to establish a national intranet within five months in an effort to create a "clean Internet," according to an International Business Times report. "All Internet Service Providers (ISP) should only present National Internet by August," Taghipour said in the statement.


Web sites such as Google, Hotmail, and Yahoo will be blocked and replaced by government-administered services such as like Iran Mail and Iran Search Engine, according to the report. The government has already begun a registration process for those interested in using the Iran Mail that will verify and record user's full name and address.

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.

Copyright, Plagiarism, and Digital Literacy

Copyright, Plagiarism, and Digital Literacy | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

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.

Selling You on Facebook

Selling You on Facebook | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Many popular Facebook apps obtain sensitive information about users—and users' friends—so don't be surprised if details about your religious, political and even sexual preferences start popping up in unexpected places.

 

Still, some app developers say they are seeking less personal data than they could. Rick Marini, chief executive of the professional-networking app "BranchOut," said that more than 20 million people have signed up for the app. What users may not realize is that professional information about all of their friends is also now a part of the app's database.

 

===> That lets "BranchOut" tout that it has more than 400 million profiles. <===
