Getting the Copyright Right!

by admin on December 19, 2012

Concept Casting relies on images and videos. All Jabberites must respect copyright laws.

1. All images are automatically subjected to copyright laws unless it clearly states otherwise.

2. All images on the internet will tell you if they can be reused and to what extent. This information is usually below the image.

3. If below the image it states "All Rights Reserved" it is subjected to some degree of copyright laws.

4. Violating copyright is illegal and can close businesses down.

5. There are varying degrees of copyright; You can use public domain images, some sites such as Flickr use a term called Copyleft and Share alike to show you can use the image. Some images are marked by a CC which stands for Creative Commons, these have restricted use. Often in the case of education, these images can be used. Sometime the owner just wants recognition in the form of a link back to their site.

If you cannot find an image at all that is free to use, consider making or taking your own.
