Understanding Copyright

Listening to the Copyright presentation was very informative.  I noted some key items that may be of use for future review.

    • Fair dealing something to look into deeper. RRU based on Universities Canada.  (Wrobel, 2016, 18.17). Side note: I want to make a mash-up now.
    • Ideas not protected just the unique expression of the idea. (Wrobel, 2016, 5.04)
    • Who owns the copyright (Wrobel, 2016, 8:32)
    • Her example of a basic copyright statement (Wrobel, 2016, 9.25)
    • Good to know the allowances for presentations and elearning for images (Wrobel, 2016, 38:25). Also the permissions for graphics (Wrobel, 2016, 53:03).

Dr. Veletsianos – Answers Our Research Questions

Dr. Veletsianos answered student questions on research, many of his replies were very informative and I look forward to applying his insights into my future research.

My team asked a question about how research that is done today with today’s ethical standards might be seen in the future and how that is reconciled.

I found his closing statements of that ensuring “participant wellbeing is at the center of your project” and that “it should never be an afterthought” very impactful.  (Veletsianos, 2019, 2.32)
