I have been a huge advocate about copyright most of my lifetime. My father helped me understand the importance of following copyright and respecting the works of other. I have been a teacher for the last fourteen years and have applied copyright, citations and fair use policy within the multimedia program I teach in. I even have the latest copy of Canadian Copyright book in my library. Melanie did offer some new points in regards to creative commons (CC). There is still some research I must complete on the different levels of creative commons licensing. I have taken a keen interest in open educational resources (OER) and there is so much more to be done in creating a repository of researched and validated OERs within the academic community. I teach for a living, so I will be immediately implementing these options into my teachings.
