Thinking about Copyright

Today, issues with copyright and the use of media in all forms boils down to a case of digital citizenship.

A colleague from another school division sent me a link to some resources on digital citizenship and copyright. Among them was this YouTube video, a TED Talk, from a rep from YouTube and how they deal with copyright issues.

What’s surprising is that over 100 years of video is uploaded (each day) and that time to encode video is actually time to compare your video to others already on the site! The video clip ends with some of the positive aspects of sharing content, and as always, I recommend folks look into sharing their own content (that’s you, friends) with a Creative Commons license.

Here are some additional resources of interest:
