Better Blogs, Episode # 9

Keep it legal. Copyright law isn’t something to mess with. Be sure you have the right to publish and use the content you’re sharing on your blog. In short, if you haven’t created “it” yourself, beware! We do not have the right to re-publish or “host” another person’s content without permission.

If you’re hosting something we own but we do not have the right to re-publish, consider placing it elsewhere or using the password-protected post feature.

Two options for publishing content under the spirit of the TEACH Act are to place it in a restrictive environment like Edmodo or Moodle, or use the password feature in WordPress.
