Just this week Fred Weinberg, Mt. Ararat High School librarian, and I did a two hour session with the faculty about intellectual property rights in the 21st Century. With the advent of one to one laptops in the high school we felt the faculty needed to understand basic copyright law, fair use guidelines, public domain, and creative common licenses as it is so easy to copy and replicate images, documents, music, and more. It is our hope empowering the faculty with knowledge about intellectual property rights and sources their students can use to get materials licensed for reuse and remix will make an impact in the teachers’ daily instructional practice as they design lessons, materials, webpages, and assignments that incorporate and exhibit respect for intellectual property.
