Frequently Asked Questions about Copyright and Fair Use
What is fair use? The Copyright Act gives copyright holders the exclusive right to reproduce works for a limited time period. Fair use is a limitation on this right. Fair use allows people other than the copyright owner to copy part or, in some circumstances, all of a copyrighted work, even where the copyright holder has not given permission or objects. How does fair use fit with copyright law? Copyright law embodies a bargain. However, copyright law does not give copyright holders complete control of their works. By carving out a space for creative uses of music, literature, movies, and so on, even while the works are protected by copyright, fair use helps to reduce a tension between copyright law and the First Amendment's guarantee of freedom of expression. How does the court know if a use is fair? Whether a use is fair will depend on the specific facts of the use. These factors are guidelines, and they are not exclusive.

8 Steps for Students to Remove Thier Digital Footprints September, 2014 One of the essential parts of the digital citizenship I have been long talking about in this blog is about digital footprints.

About Creative Commons Licenses: Our public copyright licenses incorporate a unique and innovative “three-layer” design. Each license begins as a traditional legal tool, in the kind of language and text formats that most lawyers know and love. We call this the Legal Code layer of each license. But since most creators, educators, and scientists are not in fact lawyers, we also make the licenses available in a format that normal people can read — the Commons Deed (also known as the “human readable” version of the license). The final layer of the license design recognizes that software, from search engines to office productivity to music editing, plays an enormous role in the creation, copying, discovery, and distribution of works. Searching for open content is an important function enabled by our approach. Taken together, these three layers of licenses ensure that the spectrum of rights isn’t just a legal concept. | A Clearinghouse For New Ideas About Copyright klicksafe für Kinder Fülle nicht unüberlegt Formulare im Internet aus!

Fair Use U.S. Copyright Office Fair Use Index Welcome to the U.S. Copyright Office Fair Use Index.

Phishing relies on pop-ups, spam, and websites that look authentic to obtain personal information, such as log-in information and credit card numbers. Pharming uses malicious code to redirect users to fraudulent sites where hackers can access their personal information. Pretexting acquires personal information through false and illegal means, for example, obtaining financial information by pretending to call from a bank. These scams are sometimes accomplished with the use of malware (software designed to damage computers). Once identity thieves obtain a victim’s personal information, they may use it to run up charges on credit cards, open additional accounts, take out loans, lease property, or apply for a driver’s license.

The study comes out as debate continues among psychologists and other health professionals regarding the effects of violent media on youth. An APA task force is conducting a comprehensive review of research on violence in video games and interactive media and will release its findings in 2014. “Important research has already been conducted for decades on the negative effects of gaming, including addiction, depression and aggression, and we are certainly not suggesting that this should be ignored,” said lead author Isabela Granic, PhD, of Radboud University Nijmegen in The Netherlands.
