Before we jump into Creative Commons, we’ll have to do a quick review of "copyright" – a quick review of the topic is just about all we can do because copyright is complex and confusing. I’m also not interested in focusing on the entertainment industry and their copyright issues.
We’ll start with a discussion of Medialoper’s piece about teaching kids about copyright. (FYI Captain Copyright is undergoing a revision right now. I wonder why….) From there we will look at copyright info at UNC and some ezine articles about copyright.
I’ll share this lesson plan and send her off on a Creative Commons search. Then, I’ll ask her why some of her favorite websites don’t display a CC icon, is it because they can’t or because they don’t want to or because they don’t know about it?
