So I had a dilemma. As an educator, I knew there was no earthly way this student could produce a genuine five-page research essay (by tomorrow) with her current skill set. But as a fellow human, I also felt sorry that she had been passed along and never adequately prepared for college-level writing, never shown how to read, how to summarize, or how to select quotes.

Tales from the Public Domain : BOUND BY LAW? http://www.law.duke.edu/cspd/comics/ Tales from the Public Domain : BOUND BY LAW?
?ound by Law translates law into plain English and abstract ideas into ?isual metaphors.?So the comic's heroine, Akiko, brandishes a laser gun as she fends off a cyclopean 'Rights Monster' - all the while learning copyright law basics, including the line between fair use and copyright infringement.?br>
This comic book was made possible by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. It is a project of Duke's Center for the Study of the Public Domain, which focuses on the delicate balance between intellectual property and the public domain - the realm of material that is free to use without permission or payment.

UK Intellectual Property http://www.ipo.gov.uk/ Welcome to the Government-backed home of UK Intellectual Property on the Internet. We hope to bring you all the answers to your questions and all the resources you need to find your way through the IP jungle of Copyright, Designs, Patents and Trade Marks.
This site is designed to signpost you to the correct resource for intellectual property that will best satisfy your needs.
The site was born in June 2000 as a result of a recommendation in the report from the Intellectual Property Group (IPG) of the Government's Creative Industries Task Force which was supported by The UK Patent Office Steering Board. The IPG recommended: "A single web site containing basic information about intellectual property should signpost users and creators appropriately, so that they can obtain licences for particular use and information to enable them to protect their rights, and should be sign posted from other sites where those seeking information might be looking."
Creative Commons cc http://creativecommons.org/ Creative Commons is devoted to expanding the range of creative work available for others to build upon and share.

Taking inspiration in part from the Free Software Foundation's GNU General Public License (GNU GPL), Creative Commons has developed a Web application that helps people dedicate their creative works to the public domain ?or retain their copyright while licensing them as free for certain uses, on certain conditions.

What is Copyright Protection http://www.whatiscopyright.org/ What is Copyright Protection
This page covers the basic definitions regarding copyrights. It has been written using the Berne Union for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Property (Berne Convention) as the main bibliographical source, and does not refer to the laws of any country in particular. Therefore, comparing this document to the particular laws of your country may arise in discrepancies. However, copyright laws vary from country to country but as a rule do not contravene or provide less copyright protection than the Berne Convention, provided the country in question is a member thereof.
Schools, the Internet, and Copyright Law http://www.educationworld.com/a_tech/tech121.shtml Schools, the Internet, and Copyright Law
Except for the occasional plagiarized passage or unattributed reference in student research papers, most veteran K-12 educators have had little experience dealing with copyright issues in their classrooms.
With the advent of the Internet, however, their need to know about copyright law and to understand its implications for such activities as Internet research, downloading programs and documents, creating class Web sites, and installing software on school networks has increased dramatically.

A brief intro to copyright http://www.templetons.com/brad/copyright.html This document is here because many people read my original article on copyright myths without knowing very much about what copyright is to begin with.

10 Big Myths about copyright explained http://www.templetons.com/brad/copymyths.html Note that this is an essay about copyright myths. It assumes you know at least what copyright is -- basically the legal exclusive right of the author of a creative work to control the copying of that work. If you didn't know that, check out my own brief introduction to copyright for more information. Feel free to link to this document, don't even ask! If you ask, it will make me wonder if you even read it.
