When I did my fair use assignment for the other class, I thought for a second that the easiest way to complete this blog was to use the same information and just put it in a new format. But how does that really help me or anyone else? I've spent a lot of time thinking about what angle I could take on copyright law that would be unique and helpful. One question that has plagued me since I posted my information a couple weeks ago is this: just who is responsible for being the "copyright police" in the school? While I have not found a solid answer for that question, I have found some interesting answers regarding liability for copyright infringement.
In an age where copyright infringement is easy (and thus rampant), most people have very cavalier attitudes about it. My goal in this blog is to tell you why educators SHOULD care. In the next few days, watch for postings on liability, penalties, and real-life instances.
Okay, that's my idea and short introduction. While I think it is an interesting and unique angle, I have not read anyone else's blog yet, for fear that my idea has already been taken! So, if anyone in our group has already covered this, I am sorry. I will read all the others when I am done.
