Copyright is such an important issue that every student in your class should at least have an idea about what it is and how to handle it. The increasing use of digital media and web 2.0 technologies have blurred the lines between what is and what is not acceptable to be re-used. The majority of students still think that anything online is ok to download, copy or re-use.
