Copyright Resources for the Classroom

A recent Boston Globe article in the “Surfing the Net with Kids” series included links to help teach the “how’s” and “why’s” of copyright law.

 ”Copyright, intellectual property, fair use, and public domain are not subjects reserved for lawyers and corporate publishers. Every student … needs to understand the basics of what can and cannot be copied from someone else’s work.”
