A Must Have Poster on Copyright Guidelines for Teachers Our students' excessive dependence on digital content is going wild and this obligates us from an ethical point of view ( at least ) to be ourselves aware of the copyright issues related to the use, dissemination, and redistribution of such content and also to teach our kids and students about the guidelines they have to respect when using electronic materials. The "Whatever online is Free" mentality should change and students need to constantly be reminded of the ethical codes and copyright rules they have to abide by to use the online content in an ethically sound manner.
